The Fundraising Regulator- Code of Fundraising Practice

View the Fundraising Regulator’s new webinar on the Code of Fundraising Practice

The webinar is designed to help charity staff, volunteers and trustees understand what the code is, who it applies to, what the code covers and how to use the code, both online and offline. We hope that leaders of smaller charities may find this especially helpful as a resource for training those new to fundraising.

Recognising and addressing injustices and inequalities in communities that have been deepened by Covid19 and ensuring #No-oneLeftBehind. As we collectively contribute to developing a more caring, equitable and inclusive society that rebuilds, renews and brings hope for the future this programme encourages communities to #BuildBackBetter. Online information and application support workshops are available, you can find these here. 


Community Relations Council- Good Relations Week

Good Relations Week 2020 is going to be a little different this year. It will be a FREE online experience, running from 14 to 21 September 2020.

The theme for Good Relations Week 2020 is: “Celebrating Our Journey. Embracing Our Future.” And the programme of events will celebrate the efforts of people and communities in tackling sectarianism and racism and promoting cultural diversity in Northern Ireland.
The Community Relations Council is encouraging local charities, voluntary groups and organisations, and statutory bodies to get involved and host an online event or create a piece of digital content that demonstrates the spirit of good community relations in 2020.
Archive material from the past 30 years of building united communities together is also welcome and could comprise of a compilation video of film footage, photography, or interviews.
