Coronavirus (COVID-19): Statement from Fundraising Regulator and Chartered Institute of Fundraising - Withdrawn April 2021

With new tighter restrictions introduced in England and Scotland, and continuing measures in Wales and Northern Ireland, the Chartered Institute of Fundraising and Fundraising Regulator advise that any charity fundraising which involves contact with members of the public cease where the highest levels of restrictions apply (for example, the closure of non-essential shops, gyms, and schools). Throughout the pandemic, charitable fundraising has adapted and responded to changing national and local restrictions in order to protect the public and fundraisers, and organisations have carried out fundraising activity in a safe and responsible way. As restrictions are reviewed in the future, we will continue to work together to ensure a safe return to fundraising.
