Do charities have to make their annual accounts available for the public to view?

    I was asked to apply to support a charity/not for profit organisation today that I supported last year. Something about the email didn't sit right with me and I did a google search of the organisation and that made me more inquisitive.

    I've found their published online accounts for the year end 2021, for some reason they have changed their name since then. Looking at the accounts I am curious as to who the consultants were that got a fair whack of wedge from the organisation (up approx. 500% on the previous years fee) that dropped net surplus by about 83% over the same 12 months.

    Do I have to go through some fee paying online service to get more detail on the accounts, can I request a copy from the charity free of charge or should I just mind my own business and apply to be accepted to pay them what they want again this year?
