Commission appoints interim manager to educational charity
Regulator has continued concerns about management and administration of Albayan Education Foundation.
The Charity Commission has appointed an interim manager to Albayan Education Foundation Limited (1128083).
The regulator opened a statutory inquiry into the charity, which operates a school in Birmingham and works internationally to prevent and relieve poverty, in December 2018.
The inquiry has been examining the governance, management and administration of the charity by its trustees. Due to continued concerns, it has now exercised its powers under section 76(3)(g) of the Charities Act to appoint Emma Moody of Womble Bond Dickinson as an interim manager at the charity.
Interim managers are appointed as a temporary and protective measure where the Commission has identified misconduct or mismanagement, or there is a need to protect a charity’s property.
Ms Moody has been appointed specifically to evaluate the management and administration of the charity, and will act as manager in respect of the property and affairs of the charity.
She will carry out this role to the exclusion of the trustees, however they retain control of the day to day running of the charity.
The Commission’s inquiry continues; it intends to publish a report setting out its findings on conclusion of the inquiry. Reports of previous inquiries are available on GOV.UK.
Notes to Editors
- The appointment was made on 6 September 2019.
