An overview of UK charity law

The charity sector in England and Wales works for public or community benefit, rather than to maximise and distribute profit to owners or shareholders and can described in various ways, including the:

  • 'not-for-profit', which more precisely means 'the non-profit distributing sector';
  • ‘third sector', as distinct from the private and public sectors; and
  • 'voluntary' or 'community and voluntary sector'.

The sector is also broadly referred to as the 'charity sector'; this refers to thousands of charities registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales; Within this overarching sector, there are distinct types of organisation, including: charities, social enterprises, co-operatives/mutuals, community organisations, and socially-focussed businesses.

Charities have substantial financial privileges arising from being, by definition, public benefit organisations.

The main characteristics of a charity or not-for-profit organisation are:

  • it will have express, or implied, public or community benefit purposes to which its operation is dedicated
  • income in excess of expenditure will be applied, in whole or substantial part, to the further pursuit of the purpose
  • it is supported by volunteers and/or the community
