Charities, COVID-19

A new helpsheet has been published by CCEW, the Fraud Advisory Panel and others that aims to highlight some of the key areas where charities may be vulnerable to fraud as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It identifies the following headline risks for 2021 to be aware of:

  • Cybercrime
  • Insider (or Staff/Volunteer) fraud
  • Procurement fraud
  • Financial statement fraud.

The help sheet also provides a checklist to help charities build a defence to counter these fraud risk areas, and provides links to other resources that charities may find of use.
