Register of charities

The register of charities is a growing public resource which anyone, anywhere in the world, may use to find out key information about registered charities in Northern Ireland. You can search the register by clicking the blue box at the bottom of this page.

At present, there are over 6,000 registered charities, and the Commission is continuing to build the register.


The information contained on the register of charities is provided to the Commission by or on behalf of a charity in compliance with their legal obligations set out in the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008.

This information is gathered at registration and via updates made by or on behalf of a charity, for example, on the retirement and appointment of charity trustees, changes in the charity’s governing document and the annual reporting programme. The Commission cannot and does not guarantee the accuracy of information which has been supplied by third parties, and the Commission is not responsible for the consequences of any error or omissions in the information held on the register.

It is a criminal offence to knowingly or recklessly provide the Commission with information which is false or misleading. The charity trustees of registered charities have a legal obligation to ensure their charity’s register entry is accurate.

As information is filed electronically by or on behalf of a charity errors may occur when information is being entered. The Commission does not edit this information. Where errors are discovered or reported to the Commission they will be brought to the attention of the charity. If you notice any apparent errors in the register data please let us know by email to
