Want a blacklist for rogue chuggers? Have your say

Public Fundraising Regulatory Association opens consultation

An approved register of all face-to-face fundraisers or a blacklist for those who flout the rules are two of the proposals put forward for consultation by the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association's working group on rogue fundraisers.

As part of the consultation, which began on 7 September, the group also suggests the establishment of a standardised inter-agency referencing procedure that all fundraisers would need to go through before they could start work.

Graham Bunce, managing director of fundraising agency Support Direct and chair of the working group, said: "Implementation of any of these options has logistical, legal and cost implications, so we are now asking for the views of the PFRA membership and anyone else with an interest in this issue."

The consultation, which includes 19 questions and is available on the PFRA's website, will run until 28 September. The working group will meet in early October to put forward recommendations that will also go out to consultation.
