MoU Agreed with the Fundraising Regulator

We have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding with the Fundraising Regulator.

This working agreement sets out how we will work together to ensure a cohesive approach to the self-regulatory system in place across the UK.

Alison Elliot, Chair of the Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel said:

“We’re looking forward to having a strong working relationship between the Fundraising Regulator and the Panel, based on this MOU. Together we hope to ensure that, across the UK, charities can be confident about how to raise funds and donors can be comfortable about giving, so that everyone benefits from the huge contribution that charities make to society.”

Stephen Dunmore, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Regulator said:

“This Memorandum of Understanding builds on the close working relationship we have developed with our regulatory colleagues in Scotland. It aims to ensure that whether north or south of the border, the public experiences a consistent approach in how complaints are dealt with, while ensuring that national differences are identified and addressed in the Code of Fundraising Practice as they arise.”
