Charity Fraud Awareness Week is 21-25 October

Fraud is a threat to every organisation, charities included. Charity Fraud Awareness Week brings everyone involved in the charity and not-for-profit sectors together to promote openness and honesty about fraud. This year there are five themes: Understanding charity fraud; Fundraising fraud; Cybercrime and cybersecurity; Internal (insider) fraud; and Keeping data safe.

Charity Fraud Awareness Week is led by the Charities Commission of England and Wales, and supported by a coalition of more than 40 regulators, charities, law enforcers, representative bodies and other not-for-profit stakeholders from around the world, including Charities Services.
