The Charity Commission is being given new powers by the Cabinet Office to discipline charities and their trustees, planned to be fully operational by April next year.

The powers include a strengthening of disqualification procedures, the power to control fundraising and to make social investments, the issue of official warnings and the power to wind up a charity. Some of the changes, brought under the new Charities Act will be in place next month.
