The article discusses the implication of the failure of trustees in Great Britain to report to the Charity Commission any serious problems that the charities undergo. Trustees do not let the Commission know about the problems due to stringent regulations, according to the author. It is stated that to address the concerns of trustees, the Commission is setting clearer policies on handling reports of serious incidents. Charities generating an annual income of over £25,000 must confirm in their annual returns that no serious incidents occurred.
