Consultation description

Charity fundraising: a guide to trustee duties (CC20) is the Charity Commission’s guide to charity trustees’ responsibilities in the fundraising context. It will replace the commission’s current guidance which is called Charities and Fundraising (CC20). The commission wants to make this guide as clear as possible about trustee duties, and to support them in complying. The commission wants your views on this revised version.

The revised version focuses on trustee duties, which the commission regulates. It signposts to free sources of information about the wider legal rules that apply to specific types and aspects of fundraising, such the rules on data handing and protection. It reflects other changes such as those which will be introduced if the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill becomes law. It’s designed to work better as online guidance. (For technical reasons we can only publish as PDF during the consultation; the final version will also be available in HTML.)

Your comments will shape the final version to be published in spring 2016.

You can download a pdf version of the questions for consideration, prior to completing the online response form.
