UK: PREVENTING CHARITY FRAUD – INSIGHTS AND ACTION

On 21st October, the Charity Commission published a research report about fraud committed against UK charities.  It includes insights and actions to prevent fraud, and is said to be the largest-ever analysis of fraud committed against UK charities.  It reports that less than 9% of charities have a fraud awareness training programme, and that in the next 2 years 1 in every 25 charities will experience fraud.  Over two thirds of charities (69%) think fraud is a major risk to the charity sector.  85% of charities think they’re doing everything they can to prevent fraud, but almost half don’t actually have any good-practice protections in place.  The report also includes s election of short case studies, and includes a fraud prevention checklist for completion by charity trustees, staff and volunteers
