The Fundraising Regulator has launched a new Code of Fundraising which applies to all organisations fundraising in Northern Ireland. Fundraising is the most popular type of volunteering activity here with the recent statistics from NISRA showing that 37% of volunteers are involved in this activity.
This session will explore what the Code says in terms of:
• The difference between “on behalf of” and “in aid of” volunteers and the implications for managing these different kinds of volunteers.
• How volunteers should handle donations.
• Due diligence in recruitment of fundraising volunteers.
• Dealing with an unsuitable fundraising volunteer.
We are delighted to welcome Joanne McDowell from the Fundraising Regulator to facilitate this session. If you interested in attending, please contact Nicole.Gorman@volunteernow.co.uk to book a place.
