We are pleased to report that the Charity Commission’s assessment of the allegations made against War on Want by UK Lawyers for Israel and The Lawfare Project has concluded. The Charity Commission ‘have not identified any issues that we need to take forward’.

In September 2018 a complaint against War on Want was submitted to the Charity Commission by UK Lawyers for Israel and The Lawfare Project. War on Want submitted a full response to the Charity Commission, refuting these allegations.

The Charity Commission confirmed on 11 July 2019 that it does not consider any further regulatory action or engagement to be required, and that its assessment into this matter has now concluded. This follows on from the Charity Commission’s rejection of the 2015 complaint made by Jewish Human Rights Watch against War on Want, on 8 March 2019, which confirmed that our trustees are ‘acting in accordance with both their duties and the generic regulatory guidance’.

War on Want remains committed to our work on Palestine and to standing up against injustice, in solidarity with human rights defenders around the world.
