The Charities Regulatory Authority has appointed inspectors to carry out a statutory investigation into G.L.E.N. Company Limited by Guarantee (Registered Charity Number 20060404). It is important to note that the opening of a statutory investigation is not in itself a finding of any wrongdoing.

The scope of the investigation will include:

  • The administration, governance and financial management of the charity by the charity trustees;
  • Whether charitable assets have been used exclusively for charitable purposes and can be accounted for.

On April 5 the Charities Regulator directed the Board of G.L.E.N. (under section 53 of the Charities Act 2009) to provide a number of documents.

“Having received and examined these documents, and after examining additional documentation received from the charity, the Authority has determined that a statutory investigation into G.L.E.N. is warranted,” Charities Regulator Chief Executive John Farrelly said.

The Charities Regulator has appointed inspectors to investigate the affairs of the charity and to prepare a report on their investigation and findings. In the public interest, it is the policy of the Charities Regulator to issue a public statement whenever it appoints an inspector to carry out a statutory investigation into a charity, and to publish investigation reports on their completion.

G.L.E.N.’s entry can be viewed on the public register of charities.
