Fundraising Rules and Regulations

If you are running any fundraising activity for your event that involves the public – YOU are responsible for ensuring that it complies with all the legal requirements. FNF cannot accept any liability for any activities run in our name.
Health and safety

We want everyone to be safe while having fun and raising funds – that’s why we don’t encourage particularly hazardous activities, and definitely not without specialist supervision. FNF cannot accept any liability for accidents.

Staying safe:

  • Any activity must comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (, and all other relevant legislation – and remember the Act applies to volunteers as well as to employees.
  • If you are carrying money around, always consider personal security – use a safe route, be accompanied if possible, or carry a personal alarm.
  • Make sure that no-one is fundraising, working or spectating in an unsafe environment.
  • If using sub-contractors or facilities e.g. portaloos, bouncy castles etc. make sure that the they have the requisite experience and insurance cover.
  • Think about first aid requirements and fire safety – contact your local St John’s Ambulance and Fire Station respectively for advice and help.
  • You can get free health and safety advice from The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) at It is very worthwhile checking their ‘five steps to a risk assessment’ before putting on an event.
