Charities should take note of the Fundraising Preference Service that was launched on 6 July 2017. The service enables the public to request that charities stop making direct marketing phone calls and sending emails, text messages and letters to them. There are two methods in which the public can make such a request, either by telephone, or by completing an online form. Up to three requests can be made at one time, but there is no overall limit on the number that can be made.
The Fundraising Regulator has requested that charities with a public fundraising spend of over £100,000 set up on the Fundraising Preference Service portal, which will require those charities to provide contact details and the option to upload a purpose statement. All other registered charities will be contacted by the Fundraising Regulator if a request is received.
