The Charity Commission register and regulate charities in England and Wales, to ensure that the public can support charities with confidence.  They have 4 offices in Liverpool, London, Newport and Taunton, and employ 323 people.

The CC oversee all our work to make sure we are at all times complying with English Charity law and general English law.


Every charity in the UK must have a trustee board. Trustees make decisions for the organisation and communicate closely with the Charity Commission. Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives. Depending on what the charity does, you will be making a difference to your local community or to society as a whole.

Every trustee board has a Chair. Ayath Ullah is the chair of the World Youth Organizations trustee board.
