Howard Lake | 14 April 2008 | News

The Fundraising Standards Board is looking for more suppliers to the sector to sign up to its code of practice.
The Board is encouraging companies that provide services such as direct mail, telephone fundraising, database analysis and face-to-face providers.
“With over 900 members of the FRSB scheme, it’s highly likely that suppliers will have some charity clients who have joined.By joining, these charities have signed up to strict codes of fundraising practice and will want to protect their brand reputation. They will want and expect the same of their suppliers,” said chief executive Jon Scourse.
The FRSB is holding an evening event in central London on 1 May for companies involved in fundraising work to explain how the scheme affects suppliers and their charity clients. Speakers will include Mike Colling, managing director orf media agency Mike Colling & Company and Chris Greenwood, joing managing director of nfpSynergy, along with FRSB chair Colin Lloyd.
