Charities Act 2022
This outlines the changes to a number of areas of charity law made by the Charities Act 2022 which received Royal Assent on 24 February 2022. At the time of writing, there are no implementation dates for its provisions. We will update this page once the implementation dates are known, and if any supporting legislation is subsequently passed which impacts on its provisions.
Before the Act was passed, the Charity Commission said the reforms made by it would save charities significant time and money – such as legal costs – of “at least £28 million” over a ten-year period, or £2.8 million a year, that these measures would simplify some processes and provide a more consistent legal framework whilst ensuring appropriate safeguards, and that the greater clarity around certain legal issues causing uncertainty currently would allow charities to focus on delivering on their mission.
