Managing the risk of charity fraud

A new guide to help charities proactively counter fraud has been launched by Charity Finance Group and PKF Littlejohn. It is designed to help finance professionals and trustees to identify areas for improvement when building their resilience to fraud, and moving towards actively managing the risk of fraud.

As reported by Civil Society News, this follows the Annual Fraud Indicator released in May which shows that the cost of fraud to the charity sector has increased by 73 per cent from £1.1bn in 2013 to £1.9bn.

‘Countering Fraud: A guide for the UK charity sector’ can be downloaded via the CFG publications page (pdf 858KB).
