Dan Carden responds to Charity Commission report into Oxfam

Dan Carden MP, Acting Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, commenting on today’s report by the Charity Commission into Oxfam, said:

“Today’s report reminds us that all aid agencies must do far more to fight patriarchy, racism, and abuses of power.

“The shocking new details of how Oxfam got it so badly wrong highlights exactly why the aid industry still needs root and branch reform to redistribute real power to communities in developing countries.

“Under new leadership, Oxfam has taken significant steps towards improving its safeguarding. It is now time for DFID to support them on this journey.”
