{{EW charity|regno}}


{{EW charity|regno|charityname}}

Where "regno" is the charity's registration number, and "charityname" is the name to appear in the link, if this is not the pagename.

This template provides an external link to the record for a charity at the Charity Commission for England and Wales (not the whole of the UK, hence this template was renamed from "UK charity"). This provides confirmation of the charity's status and access to reports and accounts submitted to the Commission.

Thanks are due to Mr Tony Dunn of the Register Development Team at the Charity Commission, whose helpful response to an email in Feb 2009 allowed this template to be updated to provide access to the records after redesign of the Charity Commission website.

And further thanks for his help in May 2013 after another redesign of the Charity Commission website.

The template has one required parameter, the charity's registration number. This must be input without any spaces.

If the name of the page is not the name of the charity (perhaps it has a disambiguation, or the page includes several branches of an international charity), then the second parameter is the name which should appear in the link.

Thus on the Leukaemia Research page, {{EW charity|216032}} produces the output:

Leukaemia Research, Registered Charity no. 216032 at the Charity Commission

and the same result would be produced by {{EW charity|216032|Leukaemia Research}} on this or any other page.
