Official moves to stop fraud in charities

The Charity Sector Counter-Fraud Group, set up by the Charity Commission along with other regulators and sector bodies, was reconfigured and re-launched in October 2015. The terms of reference for the group and its two sub-committees (Cyber Fraud Resilience, Fraud Risk and Resilience) have now been published by the Charity Commission.

The sub committees aims in summary:

to assess the current degree of readiness and capability within the charity sector, and to develop practical measures for dissemination/adoption.

More material and useful sources should be added to the CSCFG web page in future. Note that CSCFG was previously known as the Voluntary Sector Fraud Group.
