BOROUGH MP Andrew Miller is encouraging residents to find out more about the charities they support from a new online Register.
The new version of the independent charity regulator’s Register aims to increase the transparency and accountability of the charity sector and to help people access information about charities.
Mr Miller said: “The Charity Commission’s new Register makes it far easier for the public to see how charities are using their money.
“Ellesmere Port and Neston is home to many registered charities which are making a real difference to our community.
“I’d encourage constituents to take a look at the new Register by visiting www.charitycommission.gov.uk to find out more about the charities they support.”
The new version of the Charity Commission’s online Register makes information on charities more accessible than ever before.
It provides colour graphics and details of activities, trustees, key financial information and whether charities file their accounts and returns on time.
For charities with incomes over £500,000, new financial profiles show what they receive and how they spend their money.
