Charities legislation in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland is currently the subject of consultation by the two Governments. In the Republic of Ireland, an initial consultation has been launched to consider how the Regulatory Authority may be set up and begin its work to establish a Register of Charities and reporting. The Standing Committee of the General Synod have approved this response to this consultation and parishes and dioceses are encouraged to read it and to use it to assist their own responses.
