The Fundraising Regulator and Chartered Institute of Fundraising have today published two new pieces of guidance to support charitable organisations as they plan their return to in-person events and community fundraising activities in a safe and responsible way, in line with the Code of Fundraising Practice and Government guidance in place in each UK nation.
The new guidance covers events and community fundraising activities and cash collections. Each piece sets out a framework to aid good decision making which should be applied to any charitable community and events fundraising activity.
The guidance highlights relevant government regulations and identifies additional considerations that fundraising organisations should think about as they plan community fundraising activities, including social distancing requirements, conducting risk assessments, and capacity limits.
The publication of these two new pieces of guidance follows the publication last week of updated key principles and public fundraising guidance to support organisations as they resume public fundraising activities.
The guidance should be used to help organisations plan their return to community and events fundraising as they are able to resume according to the stages of easing restrictions that are set out by each UK nation.
