We routinely provide copies of registered charities’ governing documents

This means the information you have requested is exempt from disclosure
under section 21 of the FOI Act as it is “reasonably accessible” to you
via other means.

 

However, we can provide a copy of the governing documents under our usual
processes.  I have attached the requested documents.

 

If you think our decision is wrong, you can ask for it to be reviewed.
Such requests should be submitted within three months of the date of our
response and should be addressed to the Charity Commission at PO Box 211,
Bootle, L20 7YX or via email : [1][email address]

If, after this, you remain unhappy with the decision, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a decision. Generally,
the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted our review
procedure. The ICO can be contacted at the Information Commissioner’s
Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF or via
email : [3][email address]

 

Yours sincerely,
