Registration with the CCNI
The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland is the independent regulator of Northern Ireland charities.
As you may know, all charities in Northern Ireland over a period of 5 years have to register with the Charity Commission to ensure that their governance is in line with legal requirements. We were called early in this process and Sharon Millen completed our application over the summer months. We were informed in early September that the application had been successful and were given a new charity number – NIC100892. It is good to know that so far this more rigorous scrutiny of charitable work has approved our governance and that, in the eyes of the law, we are focusing exclusively on our stated goals.
