NICVA response to FR consultation on Fundraising Code

13 Nov 2018 Sandra Bailie    Last updated: 13 Nov 2018

The Fundraising Regulator is consulting on changes to The Code fo Fundraising Practice until 16 November. The intention is to make The Code more accessible, clearer and easier to use.

 

The Code of Fundraising Practice outlines the standards expected of charitable fundraisers across the UK. It is a key part of maintaining public trust and confidence in the sector, providing reassurance for the public that charitable organisations hold themselves accountable and that they will handle complaints appropriately.

This consultation focuses on the style, presentation, clarity and accessibility of the Code. The consultation does not propose to make fundamental changes to the standards within the Code, except where a standard may be identified as an unnecessary repetition or contradiction of a rule elsewhere in the Code, where the meaning is unclear or where it is found to be inaccurate in relation to UK law. 

Responses should reach The Fundraising Regulator by Friday 16 November 2018. You can click here for further information and to respond.
