Regulation of charities

The Department is responsible for the legal framework for charities in Northern Ireland. We are currently taking forward a programme of legislation to give full effect to the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008 (the 2008 Act). We are also responsible for overseeing the work of the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland (CCNI) which is one of the Department’s Non-Departmental Public Bodies.
