Charity News: Code of Fundraising Practice consultation

The Fundraising Regulator has launched a consultation on proposed changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice.

There are two key themes set out in the proposals, to combine and amend the existing rules into principles-based rules, and to replace rules where the Fundraising Regulator is not the lead regulator with signposting of relevant legislation and guidance. They are also consulting on areas where the Code could be expanded upon to take account of recent developments, such as increasing use of cashless giving and cryptocurrency to make donations, the use of social media and improving protection for fundraisers.

Interested stakeholders have until 1 December 2023 to comment on the proposals.
