Commission launches mobile website
16 Dec 2011
The Charity Commission has today launched a mobile version of its website to provide information to the public and charities.
It holds the details of more than 180,000 registered charities which people can search to find out what a charity does and provides contact details so that people can look up a charity to check that it is genuine before making a donation.
Help for Heroes co-founder and chief executive, Bryn Parry welcomed the site and said: “This is a fantastic initiative that will certainly reassure supporters that their hard-earned money is going exactly where it should.”
Trustees will also be able to access summaries of the Commission’s guidance on issues such as fundraising and trading.
One of the reasons for developing the mobile site was that the number of people accessing the Commission’s website via a mobile phone has increased in the last year. In November 13,575 accessed the website on a mobile device which represents 2.5 per cent of the total number of visitors compared with 0.9 per cent of the total number of visitors last November.
