The guidance sets out 6 key principles to help trustees comply with their legal duties when overseeing their charity’s fundraising, and also includes a checklist for trustees to evaluate their charity’s performance against the legal requirements and good practice recommendations set out in the guidance.

There’s been a lot of negative press in he last couple of years about charity fundraising practices so it’s advisable to have a read of this new publication to ensure you are on top of things and carrying out best practice.
