Charity fraud

Charity fraud awareness week


Charity Fraud Awareness Week 2019

21 - 25 October 2019

Fraud is a serious threat to every organisation, charities included. With reported fraud increasing at an alarming rate it is vital for charities of all shapes and sizes to protect their income and assets by building strong defences.

Charity Fraud Awareness Week promotes openness and honesty about fraud. It brings together everyone involved in the charity and not-for-profit sectors to raise awareness and share good practice in tackling fraud and financial crime.

We are stronger when we work together to keep #CharityFraudOut

Further details will be available shortly.


We are proud to announce that in partnership with the Charity Commission we've launched a survey to get a better understanding of charities’ resilience to fraud & their levels of cyber security. You can find out more about the survey on the Charity Commission website here.
