Charities fail to tell all

Have your say

New research by Sheffield Hallam University has found that most charities need to do more to explain about the public benefit of their work.

The independent research was commissioned by the Charity Commission, and carried out by Sheffield Hallam’s Centre for Voluntary Sector Research.

Researchers reviewed annual reports from 1,402 charities, and also conducted interviews and discussions with charity trustees and staff, discovering that many do not do enough to explain what benefits their work has achieved.
