Prevention of fraud in a #charity.

# Charities like other organisations regularly fall victim to frauds. A new website at http://charitiesagainstfraud.org.uk/ gives useful guidance to help prevent this

Some tips to help reduce your charity’s vulnerability to fraud include:

  1. Develop a strong counter fraud culture where staff are encouraged to play their part in the fight against fraud.
  2. Have in place and robustly apply internal financial controls. (we can draft appropriate policies)
  3. Encourage staff to voice concerns.
  4. Have a fraud response plan so that everyone knows what to do and when – stay calm but act quickly when incidents do occur.
  5. Ensure you report incidents to Action Fraud and to the #Charity Commission, via the dedicated reporting facility: RSI@charitycommission.gsi.gov.uk.
