Anglia Ruskin University is an exempt charity under the terms of the Charities Act 2011. Under this Act, universities are supervised by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as principal regulator. HEFCE is charged with ensuring that universities fulfil their obligations under charity law. All principal regulators have to promote compliance by charity trustees with their legal obligations to control and manage the administration of their charity. This means that HEFCE must be able to assess compliance with charity law as part of its usual monitoring processes, using existing forms and reporting mechanisms, adjusted as necessary to include the requirements of charity law. HEFCE must have an existing relationship with its charities and knowledge of the relevant sector.
