The charity regulator for England and Wales will launch a new online register of charities at the end of May which will display a host of governance-related information on individual charities.

The register will include information such as whether a charity’s trustees are paid, whether it is a member of the Fundraising Standards Board and whether its accounts have been qualified.

CEO of the Charity Commission Sam Younger said that the new register will allow researchers to obtain more information about charities.

“It will be much easier to pull down information from the Charity Commission register. We already have six million views a year, and we expect that to increase with this new information” he said.
