Fundraising Preference ServiceA new service is now available for individuals who want to limit the contact they receive from charities.

The Fundraising Preference Service (FPS) will give individuals greater control over how and when charities can contact them. The FPS, which launched on 6 July 2017, allows individuals to select charities that they no longer want to receive communications from.

Under the FPS, where an individual opts out from a specified charity, this will apply to all forms of communication with a named individual including email, text, phone and addressed mail.

Although the FPS is primarily an online service, a phone service is available to support those who are vulnerable or without IT. The Fundraising Regulator will notify specified charities of suppression (those people opting out) and monitor compliance. Charities need to ensure they comply with these new rules.

Further information is available from the Fundraising Regulator here.
