Time given to update agreements with professional fundraisers

The Fundraising Regulator is to give charities a ‘grace period’ of five months (to 31st March 2017) to get existing agreements with fundraising agencies updated to include new requirements coming in from 1st November, according to solicitors Bates Wells Braithwaite email briefing.

The regulator should be publishing some FAQs on its website by the end of this week (i.e. by end of October). Meanwhile, see Bates Wells Braithwaite recent article ‘New requirements from 1st November for fundraising agreements‘.
