Get involved in our campaign between 19 and 23 October to help keep your charity safe from fraud.

Wording "Now more than ever...#CharityFraudOut. Charity Fraud Awareness Week, 19-23 October 2020".

Like all sectors, charities can be susceptible to fraud and cybercrime. Those providing vital services and support to local communities during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic may be particularly vulnerable.

All charities, even those with relatively small reserves to call upon, can take simple steps to boost resilience to fraud and cybercrime. In times like these, prevention really is better than cure.

The fraud awareness campaign, run jointly by the Charity Commission and Fraud Advisory Panel (together with a coalition of sector partners), aims to encourage and empower charities to talk about fraud and share best practice.

The 2020 campaign will focus on 3 simple messages:

  1. Be fraud aware
  2. Take time to check
  3. Keep your charity safe

Get involved in the campaign

You can access a range of free resources from one handy charity fraud awareness hub. You’ll find mini-tutorials, on-demand webinars, videos and factsheets to help you with fraud awareness.

You can also develop your own counter fraud activities aimed at staff and volunteers, members and beneficiaries, donors and supporters.
