Restarting Fundraising Activities During Stage 2

As of the 12th April, public fundraising activities can resume.  This is very good news for the sector however, some key points to remember:

  • Carry out a thorough risk assessment of any fundraising activity before you start it.  Information and guidance can be found here

  • Keep a record of the discussion and decision around what you are doing and how risk has been mitigated.

  • Make sure the activity is carried out in line with the Code of Fundraising practice (you can find this here).  This guide should be followed at all times.  Many activities that are routine for charities have regulations that organisers are unaware of, and it is really important that as we restart these activities (Such as street collections, raffles, bingos etc) that we take the time to make sure we are aware of these.

If you are unsure or would like clarification, please contact our Community Development Team by clicking the button below to email us.
