Charity Commission to launch new register
The Charity Commission has stated that it intends to launch a new online register of charities, with the aim of making it easier for the public to find information on the organisations which they need.
According to the commission, user research and experience will inform the design and layout in order to make the register easier to navigate; however, it has already said that interactivity will play a part in financial history graphs, while sector data will be presented in a simpler format.
The announcement was made in the commission’s annual accounts report, which said that the new register will be built over the coming months. It will be based on the existing show charity register and the current beta register on gov.uk.
The new register is expected to launch later this year or by early 2021. Once it is delivered, further research will take place in order to make improvements.
