Public benefit assessment reports

We assessed a number of charities against the principles in our then-current public benefit guidance, including whether their aims were charitable and how they were administered for the public benefit. Read a report of each assessment.

About the reports

Each of the twenty assessment reports:

  • describes the charity
  • examines whether its aims are charitable
  • summarises the extent to which it is being administered for the public benefit.

Each assessment was carried out against the principles set out in our general guidance. We also set out our conclusions and any actions we are recommending to the trustees or requiring them to carry out.
