The new Code of Fundraising Practice sets the standards that apply to fundraising carried out by all charitable institutions and third party fundraisers in the UK. It replaces the previous code, rulebooks and legal appendices.
The Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising practice was open to a consultation in October 2018. The changes have now been finalised and the new version came into effect on 1st October 2019. The Fundraising Regulator have produced a useful, simple infographic to show the new regulatory layout. This is shown below:
The changes include:
- Consolidation of the former code
- Clearer navigation of the code
- Clarification of where there are differences across the uk
- Jargon free language
Miles Phillips Consulting will be making the new code available to all our team, clients and interested parties by providing a pdf here. If you have any comments or questions about the code, we would like to hear them.
