Our key functions are to establish and maintain a public register of charitable organisations operating in Ireland and ensure their compliance with the Charities Acts.
We also engage in the provision of services to charities, including the authorising of appointments of new charitable trustees, the framing of schemes of incorporation, authorisation of Cy-Près schemes and disposition of lands held upon charitable trusts.
Under Part 4 of the Charities Act 2009 the Charities Regulator has the power to appoint investigators to investigate the affairs of any charitable organisation.
Our Mission is:
To regulate the charity sector in the public interest so as to ensure compliance with the law and support best practice in the governance, management and administration of charities
Our Vision is:
A vibrant trusted charity sector that is valued for the public benefit it provides
