Consultation on responsible investment in charities

With the aim to help charities to thrive and to inspire public trust, the Charity Commission has opened a consultation to find out from charities how they invest their charity’s assets and how it might be possible to invest more purposefully so that charities are not only maximising their financial return but also investing in line with their aims.

The Charity Commission wants to hear from charity trustees, employees or anyone with an interest in this issue to share their thoughts on:

  • What are your experiences and current considerations around responsible investments?
  • What do you think are the barriers to more widespread responsible investments and what more could be done to support trustees to invest in a way that reflects the charity’s purpose and values?

The Commission will be seeking views until Tuesday 31 March 2020. Please email contributions to
