Charities fail to file accounts in time

Four social care charities were among 11 leading charities that failed to file their accounts with the Charity Commission in time last year, leaving them in breach of charity law.

Older people’s charity Anchor Trust, disabled people’s charity Leonard Cheshire, Save the Children  and criminal justice charity Nacro were among those that did not meet the 10-month statutory deadline.

David Kay, director of finance at Leonard Cheshire, said the charity had “consistently” filed all documents on time, while a Save the Children spokesperson said an “administrative error” had led to delays.

Nacro chief executive Paul Cavadino admitted it had been “marginally late” in submitting accounts.
