ACEVO statement on the appointment of Orlando Fraser as the Charity Commission chair

We welcome Orlando Fraser as the new chair of the Charity Commission. However, we are disappointed that the government has pressed on with this appointment without the backing of the DCMS Committee for the second successive time. 

The commitments Mr Fraser has made to political neutrality, and his willingness to restate the legal remit of the regulator in the face of external pressures, is particularly welcome. This will be crucial to build trust with the sector.

Civil society has a vital role to play as the country moves into the next stage of the pandemic. We look forward to working with Mr Fraser and the Commission to support a strong sector that is able to respond to challenges and support communities to thrive.
