Consultation on the Fundraising Code

2nd October 2018

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 is the first time that the whole code has undergone a thorough review since 2005 when several different codes were brought together. 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.

The deadline to respond is Friday 16 November 2018 and the regulator plans to publish a summary of responses early in early 2019.
