The Code of Fundraising Practice
The Code of Fundraising Practice and its associated rulebooks for street, door-to-door and private site fundraising outline the standards expected of all charitable fundraising organisations across the UK. The standards were developed by the fundraising community through the work of the Institute of Fundraising and Public Fundraising Association.The code and the rulebooks were formally transferred to the Fundraising Regulator at its launch in 2016. Recommendations on changes to the code are made by the Fundraising Regulator’s standards committee in consultation with fundraising stakeholders. Decisions to change the code are subject to approval by the Fundraising Regulator’s board.The Fundraising Promise outlines the commitment made to donors and the public by fundraising organisations which register with the Fundraising Regulator. Those who register with the regulator agree to ensure their fundraising is legal, open, honest and respectful. The standards for fundraising are set out in the Code of Fundraising Practice.

ESCC Committed Employer
Age UK East Sussex were accredited with a Wellbeing at Work Commitment Award, the first charity in the county to do so. The Wellbeing at Work Award recognises employers’ commitment to supporting employee wellbeing through an accreditation programme. The programme is operated by Public Health at East Sussex County Council and provides a framework for improving health and wellbeing in the workplace. As part of their award application, the workplace has undertaken a staff health and wellbeing survey, as well as listening groups to follow on from this. This has helped to raise an awareness of mental health across the workforce and has also built an appetite for everyone to get involved.
