Consultation Paper On Social Investment By Charities

Consultation Paper On Social Investment By Charities
The Law Commission

The Law Commission is conducting a review of selected issues in charity law, most of which arose from the evidence given to Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts during his review of the Charities Act 2006, published in 2012.1

The first issue we are considering is social investment by charities, with the remaining issues to be considered in a further consultation paper at a later date. 

2. The Law Commission’s Consultation Paper, as well as this Executive Summary, can be downloaded from the Charity Law project page on the Law Commission’s website ( > A-Z of Projects > Charity Law). The proposals in the paper do not represent a concluded view; responses to the Consultation Paper will influence our final recommendations to Government and consultees are strongly encouraged to respond to our provisional proposals and consultation questions in the Consultation Paper.
