The Code of Fundraising Practice outlines its standards expected of all charitable fundraising organisations across the UK. The first copy of the Code was published over 20 years ago and since then it has been developed by the fundraising community, through the work of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and Public Fundraising Association (PFRA).
Where to find the Code?
The Code and the rule books were formally transferred to the Fundraising Regulator on 7th July 2016 and you can view the Code on their website. You can also download a PDF copy of the document in both English and Welsh.
Consultations on the Code
Any recommendations on changes to the Code will be made by the Fundraising Regulator in consultation with us and we will post information about consultations here.
On 6th September 2023, the Fundraising Regulator opened a consultation on proposed changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice.
Those interested in charitable fundraising are invited to share their views and give feedback on the proposal by completing the consultation on the Fundraising Regulator’s website: www.fundraisingregulator.org.uk/code-consultation-2023.
