Governance and The Charity Commission
Birmingham Christmas Shelter is registered charity number 1002891. It is based on a Charitable Declaration of Trust which was updated in 2009; the trust deed can be read here.
The law requires registered charities whose annual income or expenditure exceeds £10,000 to file their annual accounts and trustees’ annual report with the Charity Commission. The law also requires charities whose annual income exceeds £10,000 to complete and return an Annual Return to the Charity Commission. All documents must be submitted no later than 10 months from the date of their last financial year end.
Once filed, a summary of these documents is published by The Charity Commission and this can be seen here.
