  • Registering organisations in England and Wales that are solely established for charitable purposes
  • Providing guidance and advice to help charities run as effectively as possible
  • Ensuring charities meet their legal requirements e.g. providing information each year on their activities
  • Taking appropriate enforcement action when there is evidence of misconduct
  • Making relevant information widely available for each registered charity
