Charity Fraud Awareness Week 2020 arrives in the West Midlands

The fraud awareness campaign, run jointly by the Charity Commission and Fraud Advisory Panel (together with a coalition of sector partners), aims to encourage and empower charities to talk about fraud and share best practice.

The 2020 campaign will focus on 3 simple messages:

  1. Be fraud aware

  2. Take time to check

  3. Keep your charity safe


Join the fraud awareness webinar

This free webinar will be available at 10am on Tuesday 20 October 2020.


The guest speakers will consider fraud and cybercrime over the next 6 to 12 months from a range of different charity perspectives. It will also outline some of the big issues we think charities should be thinking about now to prepare.

Details on how to join the webinar can be found here.


How can I get involved?

There are a number of free resources available from one handy charity fraud awareness hub. In the hub, you will find mini-tutorials, on-demand webinars, videos and factsheets to help you with fraud awareness.

Download the supporters pack from the Fraud Advisory Panel website (includes campaign posters and social media assets).

Join the conversation on Twitter by promoting your own counter fraud messages or retweet ours using the hashtag #CharityFraudOut.
