The regulation of fundraising in the charity sector
This webinar looks at the regulation of fundraising in the charity sector following various scandals in fundraising activities (Including the case of Olive Cooke) and the production of the Etherington report in 2015 - leading to the introduction of new legislation in 2016 under the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) and the establishment of the role of the Fundraising Regulator and the Code of Fundraising Practice, also in 2016.
The webinar will look in particular at:
trustees’ legal responsibilities for fundraising (even where the activity is carried out by a third party on their behalf,) under the provisions of the Charities Act 1992 and the Charities (protection and Social Investment ) Act 2016
the Charity Commission’s published guidance on charities’ fundraising
the role and responsibilities of the office of the Fundraising Regulator
the standards expected of charities under the Code of Fundraising Practice and its associated rulebooks concerned with street, door-to-door and private site fundraising
