Our Charitable Status

OCMS is a charity and is registered in the United Kingdom with the Charity Commission. The Charity Commission register and regulate charities in England and Wales, to ensure that the public can support charities with confidence. They are responsible that charities, like OCMS, meet their legal requirements.



OCMS is governed by a Board of Trustees as required by law. Our trustees are drawn from across the world to reflect our Global activities and concerns and a list of our trustees can be found here. Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. Our Senior Management Team and Executive Director are accountable to the Board of Trustees.

More information on our activities can be found on the Charity Commission website including a record of our annual accounts.
