Tips for giving safely to charity

These are some top tips by the Fundraising Regulator to help you give to charity with confidence.

Before giving, check the charity’s name and registration number.

Check whether a charity is committed to good fundraising practice by looking out for the Fundraising Badge .

Be cautious about people collecting for general charitable causes.

Look for the charity’s name, registered charity number and a telephone number on fundraising materials.

When donating online, exercise the same caution as with any other internet transaction.

Donate through a charity’s own website or through well-established fundraising platforms.
