We are part of the Charity Commission, which is the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales and has over 150 years' experience of ensuring charities are well governed and managed. The Charity Commission enables charities to maximise their potential and enhances the accountability of charities to donors and those who benefit from their work.
Since 2002 the International Programme has been working with civil society and government bodies in countries across the world to contribute to the development of healthy, accountable and independent NGO sectors worldwide. We have worked with over 40 countries to date and currently have projects in the Gulf, Middle East, Africa, South and South East Asia. Our work involves sharing best practice ideas on effective NGO regulation and providing technical assistance.
