William Shawcross, Chairman of the Charity Commission, said:
Sir Stuart’s review is an important step towards rebuilding public trust in charity fundraising. The review makes recommendations to reform and strengthen self-regulation. Charities must now step up and lead the way forward.
The Charity Commission will play its part to support the development of any new fundraising regulatory body. It is crucial that charity trustees meet their obligations to oversee fundraising and I welcome the emphasis on this in the review.

The commission has published its own strategic statement on fundraising explaining its role and that of other organisations.
The commission will be consulting on a new version of its own guidance on fundraising shortly.
