  • Charity Commission publishes guidance on new fundraising rules

    The Charity Commission has released guidance on new fundraising rules that come into effect today as part of the Charities Act 2016.

    The “non-legal” document, titled CC15d, outlines rules on two key areas, including the reporting duties of trustees and charities working with professional fundraisers. In particular it points to rules surrounding the need for agreements between charities and professional fundraisers and commercial participators – including requirements for charities to effectively monitor professional fundraisers. It also points to the duty for professional fundraisers to protect the public, including vulnerable people, from “unreasonably intrusive” or “persistent fundraising approaches and undue pressure to donate”. Auditing guidance outlined by the regulator, includes the need for registered charities to include additional information about fundraising practices in annual accounts – including how they work with professional fundraisers and deal with fundraising complaints.

     
  • Fundraising Regulator announces Code of Fundraising Practice consultation dates

    The Fundraising Regulator has said it will consult charities on prospective changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice in the new year, following a meeting with ‘key stakeholders’ last Wednesday.
    In a statement on its website, the Fundraising Regulator said the consultation on possible changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice will take place between February and April 2017. The Regulator asked those who would “like to be added as the key contact on its list of stakeholders to be included in the upcoming and future consultations to email them. More information can be found here.


    The Regulator also confirmed it had invited “several stakeholder representatives from umbrella bodies across the sector” to discuss the upcoming consultation. A number of “issues around consent” were covered – particularly in relation to the report from NCVO’s working group on consent. In addition the meeting discussed issues around soliciting donations; working with third parties and trustees.

    A spokesman from the Fundraising Regulator refused to comment further on the topics discussed, or name which stakeholders had been present. He did say however the meeting was held to “further guide the Fundraising Regulator’s thinking about the consultation that it is planning to launch on the development of the Code early next year”.   IoF and Commission present at the meeting

    The Fundraising Regulator took control of the Code of Fundraising Practice from the Institute of Fundraising when it launched on 7 July

     
  • Clive Mollett

    Everyone involved in The Lotteries Council is extremely sad to hear that Lotteries Council Chairman, Clive Mollett, has passed away following a recent illness.

    Clive was a much respected stalwart of the organisation and a champion of our members. As well as being a wealth of knowledge on lottery fundraising he brought years of fundraising experience to his role as Chairman and during his career raised millions of pounds for good causes. He will be fondly remembered. Our thoughts are with his wife Elizabeth, family and friends at this sad time .
