The Charity Commission advises that if your charity uses social media, you are responsible for:
- agreeing and putting in place a social media policy so that you have internal controls that are appropriate and proportionate for your charity’s needs and which are clear to everyone at the charity using social media
- ensuring your social media policy is regularly reviewed to check it is working effectively and fits your charity’s needs
- ensuring your charity’s social media use helps you achieve your charity’s purpose (what your charity was set up to do) and in a way that is in your charity’s best interests
- complying with relevant laws
- ensuring any campaigning or political activity that your charity does on social media complies with the rules on political activity and campaigning
- ensuring your processes help you keep people safe online including any extra considerations when dealing with vulnerable users. Read the “Operating online” section of our guidance on safeguarding
