FUNDRAISING IN ENGLAND, NORTHERN IRELAND AND WALES

THE FUNDRAISING REGULATOR’S REGISTRATION SYSTEM (FRRS)

Release International is registered with the Fundraising Regulator as part of their Registration System (FRRS). This means that we are committed to high standards of fundraising practice in all that we do.

Release International abides by the Fundraising Regulator’s Fundraising Promise:

FUNDRAISING PROMISE

This promise outlines the commitment made to donors and the public by fundraising organisations which register with the Fundraising Regulator. Those who register with the regulator agree to ensure their fundraising is legal, open, honest and respectful. The standards for fundraising are set out in the Code of Fundraising Practice.

FUNDRAISING IN SCOTLAND
THE OFFICE OF THE SCOTTISH CHARITY REGULATOR (OSCR)
AND THE SCOTTISH FUNDRAISING STANDARDS PANEL

The FRRS does not apply in Scotland. The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) and The Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel (SFSP) regulate fundraising in Scotland. Release International is also a registered charity with the OSCR.

FUNDRAISING GUARANTEE

In Scotland, the Fundraising Guarantee is the commitment to best practice made to donors and the public by fundraising organisations which are registered by law in Scotland.  The Fundraising Guarantee is set alongside a Scottish commitment to abide by the the Code of Fundraising Practice.
