star this property answer text The Fundraising Regulator, the independent non-statutory regulator of charitable fundraising, launched the Fundraising Preference Service (FPS) on 7 July 2017. The FPS enables people to more easily opt out of charity fundraising requests. For the first full year that the FPS has been in operation, it has had 6,619 unique users of the service with 19,583 requests to stop communication from specified charities. Over 25% of the requests were for a person other than the person making the request, indicating that the FPS is providing an important service to vulnerable and elderly people who may need other people to make requests on their behalf. The Fundraising Regulator has said that it intends to let the FPS to operate for another year before it reviews its effectiveness. This will also enable it to monitor the effect of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018 on the way charities use data and consent rules to contact their donors and other supporters. more like this

The Code of Fundraising Practice has already been strengthened in several areas. The law has been changed in the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 to better protect vulnerable individuals and encourage greater accountability. The Charity Commission has published updated fundraising guidance that emphasises trustees’ role in over-seeing fundraising. Many charities and their representative bodies are already taking their own steps to improve fundraising practices.</p><p>The new Fundraising Regulator is due to open in July and will proactively ensure that charities fundraise to the high standards the public expect.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Sexual harassment is completely unacceptable and has no place in the name of charity or charitable fundraising.</p><p>Charities have a duty to fundraise responsibly and in line with their values. Charity trustees must also consider the well-being and protection of staff, volunteers and beneficiaries – not just those they are there to help. The Charity Commission, the independent registrar and regulator of charities in England and Wales, is assessing and dealing with the allegations that have been raised regarding the Presidents Club Charitable Trust as a matter of urgency. It has said that it will deal robustly with any misconduct or mismanagement it finds, and will consider what further regulatory action may be required.</p><p>The Code of Fundraising Practice sets out the standards expected of all charitable fundraising organisations across the UK, requiring their fundraising to be “….open, honest and respectful”. The Code is regulated by the independent Fundraising Regulator, which has said it will consider any case where it appears an organisation has failed to meet these principles.</p><p> </p><p>The Fundraising Regulator has assessed the allegations regarding the President’s Club charity dinner. The Fundraising Regulator has written to the charity setting out its regulatory role and seeking further information about the charity dinner and how the charity carries out its fundraising</p><p> </p>
