CHARITIES: Hounded by Begging Letters?

You are not alone! Last year, the government launched a review into charity fundraising practices. In the meantime, check out our Charity Top Tips:

  • Pick 1 or 2 charities you would like to support each year. Set a limit of how much you can afford to donate, and don’t feel pressurised into donating more.
  • Write to companies to request they remove you from their database.
  • Never give your bank details to sign up to a regular donation on your door-step or in the street.

Report concerns to the Charity Commission on 0845 300 0218, Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator on 01382 220 446, and the Fundraising Standards Board 0333 321 8803.
