Code of Fundraising Practice response paper: closed February and March 2018


This consultation paper explains the first of the consultations that the Fundraising Regulator held in 2018. We anticipate a busy year of engagement with the charitable fundraising sector and the public at large. 

As always, we welcome the views of all those who use or are affected by changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice. We are committed to continued engagement through consultation to check our assumptions and inform any changes we make to fundraising standards and practice.

This document contains both the consultation context, the proposed amendments and then the consultation summaries with the final amendments agreed by the Fundraising Regulators Board for each part of the conversation

About this consultation

This consultation was formed of three parts. 

Parts A and B dealt with specific issues in the current wording or inclusion of rules within Code of Fundraising Practice that have been raised by stakeholders or identified following our regulatory work over the previous18 months since our launch.

Part C concerning online fundraising platforms introduced new rules to the code where the existing rules do not cover adequately a popular and growing fundraising method.

Parts A and B were classed as Category 3 consultations within our published consultation process and Part C is a Category 2. You can read the full Guide to our Consultation Process on our website.
