Charity trustees have a duty to manage their charity’s resources responsibly and ensure that funds are properly protected, applied and accounted for.
With a total annual income of over £69 billion, the charity sector is vulnerable to fraud and financial crime. It’s essential that trustees put in place suitable counter-fraud measures – even small changes can help protect charities from harm.
The Charity Commission and others have established the Charity Sector Counter Fraud Group (CSCFG) to help improve the charity sector’s resilience to fraud.
