Concerns over Charity Commission response to Oxfam warnings

: The Charity Commission has launched a full statutory inquiry into Oxfam following allegations of sexual misconduct among their staff in Haiti after its earthquake. But why did the Commission, the body that oversees our charities, not take concerns more seriously before now?

Last night we revealed the frustration of Oxfam’s former head of safeguarding when she took her own concerns about the organisation’s failure to address allegations of abuse to the Commission. Now the chair of the parliamentary committee overseeing them says there are “serious questions” that need to be answered.
