Casework decisions

Draft schemes

We publish our proposed schemes to let the public know about them and invite comments or representations. We must take into consideration any representations that we receive within the period of notice and may, as a result, decide that the proposals need to be changed.

The Department for Communities (DfC) has given notice of its intention to make four Education Authority schemes. Information on these schemes is available on the DfC website here


Regulated consents

Under the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008 (the ‘Act’), some changes to a charitable company’s articles of association must be approved by the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland before they take effect.

Alterations to the objects, dissolution clause or authorisations for benefits to be paid to directors in any charitable company’s Memorandum and Articles of Association, or Articles of Association, must receive prior written consent from the Commission before they can become effective. For more information, please see the Consents for charitable companies section of our website. 

The spreadsheet below details the Commission's current consents to alterations for regulated consents. Each consent is published on this spreadsheet for 45 days, after which it is moved to the Recent casework decisions page.
