Fair fundraising at railway stations

Third Sector video: Has a deal between rail operators and the Fundraising Standards Board pushed small local charities out in the cold?

The Fundraising Standards Board has an agreement with rail operators that only charities that are members of the FRSB should be given permission to raise funds at railway stations.

This agreement has been questioned by some fundraisers and by the Institute of Fundraising, the professional body that sets the Code of Fundraising Practice which is used by the FRSB to adjudicate on complaints. Many think the deal may unfairly prevent small local charities from raising money.

In the fourth of the videos from Big Fundraising Question Live, panel members put discuss ideas including free FRSB membership for small charities.
