    The 2014 Annual Report & Accounts is the last published by Aware. Though it mentions a pension fund for employees no details are given of CEO’s annual salary or any other specific information governing such employ. I think it should be published.

    I could not agree with any charitable organisation paying an executive salary or any other form of renumeration out of voluntary fundraised monies.

    I would be happy to do what I can for any voluntary charitable organisation, such as The Lions Club.

    The governance of some of these charities, as we now witness, have left the contributing public down badly. It is clear from what has come out that the internal audit as well as the independent external audit didn’t robustly do the job in these cases. Well run similar organisations are now the losers.

    Most charities were set up with the best of motives to fill a gap in much needed public services. Many are now commercial concerns in receipt of public funds topped up by public generosity . Many do a very good job and still satisfy a need, but there is a huge amount of duplication of service.due to lack of regulation .Charities should never be seen as a replacement for proper public services, The problem of abuse.of the system has been around for decades as some people will always take advantage of hard cases to help themselves in the guise of helping others .While salaries may grab the headlines ,expenses legally but not ethically obtained may dwarf salaries in many cases It should be also noted most are transparent in showing their costs in wages and vouched expenses .and are an example to all. Over the years prosecutions for breaches of the Street and House to House and the Gaming and Lotteries Acts were defended by a full legal team which always seemed strange to me .One has always to admire the people in all walks of life that give their time and talents free for the benefit of other and very few know of their good deeds.
