Charities Against Fraud Awards
Entries for this year’s awards have now closed. Our judges are reviewing the submissions and we’ll be announcing the winner at our drinks reception on Monday 21 October.
Helping to mark the start of International Charity Fraud Awareness Week, we’ll be announcing the winner of this year’s Charities Against Fraud Awards at an exclusive drinks reception in London. With an opportunity to meet and network with some of the leading figures in the counter fraud and charity sectors, you’ll have the opportunity to hear what the winner and other charities are doing to combat fraud, why fraud prevention is so important in an age where fraudsters are becoming more sophisticated, and how you can adopt the best practice in your charity.
If you’re responsible for counter fraud in your charity, this is an event not to miss.

Attending the charity fraud awareness week launch on the same day, but nowhere to go in-between? Don't worry - we've got you covered!
We want to ensure you have somewhere to base yourself during the intermission between the morning’s launch event and the Awards ceremony at 4pm, so you don’t have to pick between them. We are offering a working space in our Aldersgate Street office, where we are holding the Awards and just 10 minutes from the launch event venue.
We will be live streaming the day's webinars on big screen, providing working areas for you to catch-up on emails or chat with your peers, and have two private rooms should you need some quiet for a phone call/meeting. For those who pre-book in advance, lunch will also be provided.
Space is limited, so make sure you reserve your place now!

About the awards
For the third year running, the Charities Against Fraud Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of people proactively fighting fraud in the charity sector. With a focus on prevention and deterrence, any individual, team or charity that set or achieve best practice or demonstrated an innovative approach in tackling fraud can enter.
The Awards are part of the International Charity Fraud Awareness Week (21 – 25 October) which promotes openness and honesty about fraud and will focus on five key themes throughout the week: Understanding charity fraud, Fundraising fraud, Cybercrime and cybersecurity, Internal (insider) fraud, and Keeping data safe.
About the Charities Against Fraud Partnership
Charities Against Fraud is a partnership of over 40 charities, professional representative charitable bodies and other not for profit stakeholders working together to combat fraud targeted against charities. This includes the Charity Commission, Fraud Advisory Panel, Charity Finance Group and Foundation for Social Investment as well as charities such as Oxfam and Help for Heroes.
With a total income of over £69 billion, the charity sector is vulnerable to fraud and financial crime so it is essential that we help to improve the charity sector’s resilience. To assist charities with their counter fraud activities, Charities Against Fraud's website provides an initial point of reference for trustees, staff and volunteers who want to find out more about tackling fraud in their charity. It includes guidance, top tips, case studies, as well as signposting to other organisations tackling charity fraud.
To promote awareness and the importance of counter fraud, Charities Against Fraud also lead a week-long campaign during October called ‘Charity Fraud Awareness Week’, which this year will take place during the week of 21-25 October. The campaign aims to not only raise awareness but remind charities how to limit their fraud risk, so that trustees and staff can recognise the warning signs of fraud and shape an effective and proportionate response.
