Following the publication of the revised Public Benefit Guidance by the Charity Commission, Elizabeth Chamberlain, Senior Policy Officer said:
'The Commission has made good work of the challenging job of distilling centuries of case law into guidance for trustees. We remain of the view that it would be helpful for parliament to establish some high-level principles of public benefit to which the Commission and trustees could have regard.
‘The guidance does not and perhaps cannot go far enough to give trustees confidence in their decision-making in every possible situation. NCVO will continue to support trustees and trustee boards to work towards the best standards in governance and public benefit reporting.'
