Serious Incident Reporting draft guidance

7 Jul 2017 Denise Copeland    Last updated: 11 Jul 2017

The Charity Commission for NI is currently consulting on its draft guidance on serious incident reporting which will help trustees to determine what a serious incident is and when they need to report on it.  

Charity trustees will most likely be aware that they are responsible for reporting serious incidents from within their charity to the Charity Commission.

The Commission presented the draft guidance at a seminar in NICVA where it received some really useful feedback.  Overall participants thought the guidance was really helpful as it included useful examples of what not to report as well as what needed to be reported.  From the group discussion that took place, it was recognised that clarity was needed in certain areas around the level of detail that was required.  

The Commission would welcome your views/comments on its draft guidance before 5 pm on Friday 21 July 2017.  The draft guidance and consultation questionnaire can be accessed on the CCNI website.'s picture
