This award recognises an individual, team or charity that has demonstrated an innovative approach in tackling fraud targeted against their charity.  The focus of the award is on pro-active prevention and deterrence, in particular around the five core themes:

  • insider fraud;
  • cybercrime;
  • due diligence and partnership working;
  • transferring money safely (to beneficiaries and partners etc.); and
  • receiving money safely (donations, grants, cash, legacies).

Nominees will be judged on, although not limited to:

  • The innovative approach demonstrated
  • The challenges overcome and opportunities taken
  • Improvements seen as a result, e.g. financial savings, increased efficiency, improved staff morale, enhanced trust and confidence
  • Positive impact upon the intended primary audience, e.g. service users or beneficiaries
  • Benefit to the wider sector and potential for adoption by charity peers
Individual fraud investigations will not be considered.
