The Fundraising Regulator found that although some charities met their obligations in full, less than half were compliant with the Act or did not adequately cover all the requirements.
Common issues include:
- limited detail about how fundraising campaigns are run and managed, including who carries out the work;
- failure to demonstrate how the Code of Fundraising Practice (opens in a new tab) is used to guide their work;
- a lack of thorough description about fundraising carried out on behalf of the organisation;
- frequent omission of the number of complaints received; and
- limited explanation of how vulnerable people are protected in the organisations’ fundraising work.
