The United Reformed Church is helping to promote Charity Fraud Awareness Week, an award-winning campaign run by a partnership of charities, regulators, law enforcers, representative and umbrella bodies, and other not-for-profit stakeholders from across the world.

The purpose of the week is to raise awareness about fraud and cybercrime and to create a safe space for charities and their supporters and members to talk about fraud and to share good practice.

ImmCampaign graphicThe United Reformed Church (URC) has added its voice to a campaign to scrap new immigration rules which mean that someone found to be rough sleeping could be deported. 

The rules, which came into effect earlier in the year, give Home Office officials new powers to refuse or cancel a person’s leave to remain in the UK (i.e. their visa), a decision which may lead to removal from the country. These powers can be used if a person has been rough sleeping and has “refused repeated offers of suitable support and engaged in persistent anti-social behaviour.”
