The Fundraising Regulator, which oversees charitable fundraising in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, has developed a self-reporting tool so that charities can inform the regulator of any known or potential breach of the Code of Fundraising Practice where in poses an actual or potential risk to the public, the charity sector or public confidence in fundraising.
There is no formal obligation to self-report incidents to the regulator, but doing so can enable them to advise on the appropriate steps to be taken as a consequence of the breach.
The Scottish fundraising regulator has rebranded, and is now known as the Scottish Fundraising Adjudication Panel. As part of its rebrand the regulator updated its website with improved functionality and a new members’ area where resources can be accessed, and has also amended the Fundraising Guarantee logo that charities registered for the Good Fundraising Guarantee can use in their publicity. The functions of the regulator though remain unchanged, to oversee fundraising standards in Scotland and address any complaints made regarding fundraising practices.
