Institute of Fundraising welcomes Buse report

Howard Lake | 28 January 2004 | News

The Institute of Fundraising has welcomed the production of the final report from Rodney Buse into a proposed model of self-regulation for fundraising in the UK.

CEO Lindsay Boswell said: This is a constructive and thoughtful report and we are pleased to see the recommendations are based upon the models of best practice promoted by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT). The Institute now intends to take these findings and talk to the Home Office about providing support for the implementation stage. It is vital that the sector has a robust model of best practice and that fundraising organisations not only take part but communicate that they follow best practice to their donors, supporters and beneficiaries.

The report will now undergo a three month consultation period, during which the Institute will consult with its members.
