  • Charity Fraud Awareness Week 19-23 October 2020

    Created: 14/10/2020

    International Charity Fraud Awareness Week (19 - 23 October 2020) brings together everyone involved in the charity and not-for-profit sectors to raise awareness and share good practice in tackling fraud and cybercrime. This campaign is led by a coalition of over 40 charities, regulators, law enforcers, representative and umbrella bodies, and other not-for-profit stakeholders.

    All charities, NGOs and not-for-profits are susceptible to fraud and can be targeted. Those providing services and supporting local communities may be especially vulnerable to fraudsters attempting to exploit current national and global crises to carry out fraud and cybercrime. This means that now - more than ever - charities need to be fraud aware and take steps to protect their money, people and assets from harm. 

    Who can get involved in the campaign?

    • Trustees, directors, board members, staff and volunteers
    • Organisations that represent the interests of the sector and/or act as their voice
    • Accountants, auditors and solicitors acting as professional advisers to the sector
    • Regulators, law enforcers and policymakers working to safeguard the sector, and
    • Anyone else who wants to protect the sector and the crucial work it does.
