The Fundraising Regulator has issued an improved Code of Fundraising Practice to take effect in October 2019.
The changes will make it easier for charities and third-party organisations to understand the standards expected of them when fundraising.
The changes include:
- Adding the rulebooks and legal appendices to the code, so that all standards can be found in one place;
- The standards are in three parts, making it easy to know which ones apply depending on the type of fundraising;
- Clearly defining the differences in law in England and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland;
- Transparent, jargon-free language.

The newly improved Code of Fundraising Practice has been published today, and will come into effect in October 2019. The changes are designed to make it easier for fundraisers, charities and third-party organisations to understand the standards expected of them when fundraising. The new code is also easier for the public to use, so they can know what to expect from ethical fundraising.
