Fundraising News: Popan revamps its website to open up alternative income

A charity that almost folded earlier this year as it waited for delayed notification about success of a Department of Health grant application has revamped its website to enable online giving.

The Prevention of Professional Abuse Network (Popan) was eventually bailed out by Comic Relief, which provided the first instalments of a grant it had promised.

Jonathan Coe, the charity's chief executive, said: "After a funding crisis we are investing in new ways to strengthen our income base in order to move away from our historical dependence on grants."

He added that the time had come to develop fundraising such as online shopping, requests for corporate donors and subtle guidance on legacies.

Coe aims to triple the charity's turnover from £250,000 over the next three years.

The site carries sections on Popan's services, policy concerns and an archive of and links to daily news stories about abuse by health and social care workers.
