Changes to the law could help charities run more effectively says the Law Commission.  

In the Technical Issues in Charity Law  report published today, the Commission says that problems in charity law prevent or delay legitimate charitable activities, discourage people from volunteering, and force charities to obtain professional advice that should not be necessary.

As a result the independent law reform body has recommended changes to remove unnecessary bureaucracy whilst ensuring proper protections for the public, who donate around £9.7billion each year.
