In 2009 the Fraud Advisory Panel (supported by the Charity Commission) published Fraud in the charitable sector – at that time the most extensive charity fraud study undertaken in the UK.

Ten years on, the Commission (partnered by the Fraud Advisory Panel) repeated and extended the scope of that survey, contacting a representative sample of 15,000 registered charities across England and Wales.

With a 22% response rate, this is the largest ever analysis of fraud committed against UK charities.
