Commission appoints interim manager to Aid Convoy
Interim manager appointed to address continued concerns at charity under inquiry.
The Charity Commission has appointed an interim manager to Aid Convoy (1149015), a charity with purposes to support people who have been affected by natural or other disasters overseas.
As part of the Commission’s ongoing statutory inquiry into Aid Convoy, and in light of continued concerns, the Commission appointed Adam Stephens of Smith and Williamson LLP to act as interim manager of the charity under section 76(3)(g) of the Charities Act 2011 on 1 November 2019. Mr Stephens’ appointment is to the exclusion of the charity’s trustees.
Interim managers are appointed as a temporary and protective measure where the Commission has identified misconduct and/or mismanagement in the administration of a charity, or where there is a need to protect a charity’s property.
The interim manager’s role is to take control the day-to-day running of the charity while giving consideration to its future viability.
The Commission’s inquiry continues.
