Fines for street fundraising fall

Fundraising Street fundraising charities and agencies paid £36,000 in fines to the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association in the year to the end of March, about half the amount they paid in 2013/14, according to data from the self-regulatory body.

The latest compliance and enforcement data published by the PFRA shows that 16 of its 162 charity and agency members paid the fines, which do not have legal force but are levied on members that are found, through mystery shopping checks, to have breached the PFRA Rule Book or the Institute of Fundraising's Code of Fundraising Practice.
