Terms of reference for review of self-regulation of fundraising announced

The terms of reference for the review of the self-regulatory system of fundraising have been agreed.

Chaired by NCVO chief executive Sir Stuart Etherington, the review panel will be comprised of Lord Leigh of Hurley, Baroness Pitkeathley, and Lord Wallace of Saltaire.

The review will look at the effectiveness of the current self-regulatory system for fundraising in light of recent high-profile cases.

It will make recommendations and proposals to ministers, the charity sector and other bodies involved in fundraising on the changes needed to ensure an effective system of self-regulation which protects the interests and the confidence of the public while serving beneficiaries.

The review will cover the main forms of fundraising: direct mail, telephone, doorstep, and textile collections.
