Charity Fraud Awareness Week

Charity Fraud Awareness Week

18-22nd October 2021 is Charity Fraud Awareness Week which aims to tackle fraud and cybercrime by raising awareness and sharing good practice.

Every charity, NGO and not-for-profit is susceptible to fraud and cybercrime by criminals exploiting the current global crisis. Charities need to be aware of the risks and take steps to keep their money, people and data safe.

Who is it for?

  • 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 advisors 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.

The website offers a range of help sheets and resources. You can register for a series of events and sign a fraud pledge to show what your organisation is doing to manage the risk of fraud and protect your charity’s assets.

Together, we can #StopCharityFraud
