Sector support for voluntary fundraising regulation
Growing public awareness of our work
Registered organisations can display the Fundraising Badge – the logo that says ‘registered with Fundraising Regulator’ – on their fundraising materials to show the public they are committed to legal, open, honest and respectful fundraising in line with the Code of Fundraising Practice.
We're pleased that 73% of respondents to a recent survey would be more confident in supporting a charity displaying the badge. Public awareness of our work has also more than doubled since 2019, rising from less than one in ten, to one in five members of the general public.
A maturing casework service
An improved Fundraising Preference Service
The Fundraising Preference Service (FPS) is the UK’s free service which enables the public to manage direct marketing communications from registered charities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. A person may make one request to stop communications through the FPS that generates a suppression against more than one charity.
We launched an improved service following an independent review, and saw a 10% increase in the volume of suppressions in 2021/22 to over 6,000 and 7% increase in users to over 2,400.
“This year continued to pose challenges for the charitable fundraising sector with the coronavirus pandemic, Ukraine conflict and cost of living pressures affecting the fundraising landscape. I commend the generosity of the British public and diligence of charities who have worked hard to maintain excellent standards whilst raising funds in this changing climate."
Lord Toby Harris, Chair
