Charity Commission e-bulletin for umbrella bodies

The Charity Commission has launched an e-bulletin for umbrella bodies and capacity-building charities, entitled Network News.

The first edition of Network News was sent out in July as a trial. A second edition was sent in December to about 60 umbrella bodies and capacity-building organisations and to other non-charitable bodies with links to the commission.

The December edition included news about changes to the annual return for 2015 and the commission’s consultation on a new version of its guide for board members, The Essential Trustee, among other items.

Other umbrella bodies interested in receiving the new e-bulletin should contact the commission via their website at
