Charities back the fundraising regulator

Two-thirds of respondents to this week's poll believe the Fundraising Standards Board is a "credible watchdog".

A total of 68 per cent of those who voted on Third Sector Online gave the board the thumbs up. But one in three (32 per cent) of those polled said the it was not credible.

Third Sector recently reported that the board, which now has more than 500 members, received fewer than 100 complaints since its launch last February. Of those, only a "small number" had been referred to the secretariat or board.

Jon Scourse, chief executive of the board said: “That two-thirds of voters indicated their confidence in the Fundraising Standards Board is good news, particularly as this poll is soon after we were established. Our ever-growing membership of the scheme supports this.”
