Charity fraud awareness week

This week marks International Charity Fraud Awareness Week.  Robert Brooker, co-head of our Forensic and Fraud team, look at how not for profits organisations can reduce the risks of fraud.

Here at PKF Littlejohn, we recognise that all sectors, including charities, are at risk to fraud, bribery and corruption and can be seen as an easy target for criminals. Incidents of fraud and cyber-crime are increasing - which is why it’s important for all charities, regardless of shape, size and make up, to protect their income and assets by building strong defence mechanisms.  Prevention is preferable to cure.

International Charity Fraud Awareness Week will encourage and empower charities to talk about fraud and share best practice; and we are proud to be part of the conversation.

How to get involved in the week

We encourage everyone in the charity sector – including trustees, leadership team, employees and volunteers - to get involved in International Charity Fraud Awareness Week. You can:

  • Download our latest resources
  • Like and share the PKF Littlejohn tweets and LinkedIn posts using the hashtag #CharityFraudOut
  • Register to access content on the Charity Fraud Awareness Hub to access information, guidance and case studies
