Code overhaul – what you need to know

Code overhaul – what you need to know

Sam Boyle | 28 September 2018

Last week, the Fundraising Regulator announced a 10-week consultation on a new draft of the Code of Fundraising Practice.

The Code of Fundraising Practice is, and has always been, an evolving set of standards that should be regularly reviewed and revised where needed to adapt to the changing environment.

If we looked back on the blogs and articles from last December and January with their predictions for the year to come, I wonder how many foresaw the events of 2015 and how the fallout and follow up would now be shaping our thoughts, work, and future plans.
