So if charities are part of the glue that holds society together, then good governance is the glue that binds charities.” Recognising charities that advance faithShawcross took the opportunity to reassure delegates that the Commission will continue to recognise the contribution made to British society by charities that advance faith.He said: “The suggestion some have put forward that the Commission is seeking to overturn centuries of law and culture by questioning the charitable status of religious charities is, quite simply, wrong. One MP asked me recently if the Commission was part of a plan or even plot to secularise British society. Absolutely not, I said. I repeat that emphatically today.”There are over 31,000 charities in England and Wales that cite religious charitable objects and many more that have a faith-based focus. www.charitycommission.gov.uk Tagged with: Charity Commission Law / policy Managementcenter_img Howard Lake | 29 November 2012 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
