Updates on the Charity Commission's website indicate that increasing numbers of investigations are being launched by the Commission. This is an indication that the Charity Commission's strategy is changing and that it is eager to demonstrate publicly that it is an effective regulator. This has real implications for charities dealing with the Commission and may mean that an enquiry by a charity about a difficult issue becomes the subject of a very public report on the Commission's website.

James Sinclair Taylor and Andrew Studd, partners in the charity and social business team, discuss the implications of the rise in the Charity Commission's investigations.
