After the first conference about fraud against the charity sector by the Fraud Advisory panel and the regulator the Charity Commission in late October 2015, we ran a four-part series of articles from the December 2015 to the March 2016 print issues of Professional Security Magazine. Now the organisers are putting on a second such national conference, titled: Prevention is better than cure.
Organisers point out that fraud is a serious threat to every organisation – and charities are no exception; it is vital for charities of all sizes and types to build strong fraud defences to protect income and assets and meet their duties. Trustees and managers should have the knowledge and skills needed to recognise the tell-tale signs of fraud and shape an effective response, they argue.
This conference seeks to bring together senior figures from the charity and counter-fraud worlds to discuss the challenges charities face, highlight risks, and share best practice. Confirmed speakers include representatives from: Amnesty International, Big Lottery Fund, British Pregnancy Advisory Services, Charity Commission, Macmillan Cancer Support, Oxfam GB, and Weber Shandwick.
The event runs at the same venue as last year, Royal College of Physicians, 11 St Andrews Place, London NW1 4LE.
