For Employees

What is the Charity Fraud Line?

The Charity Fraud Line, powered by the crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers, is there for you to pass on anonymous information about wrongdoing at work.

We know how difficult it can be when you've seen or know about something at work that you think is wrong. 

But why should you lose sleep over what someone else is doing? 

Where do you draw the line?

The Charity Fraud Line is there for you to pass on information about wrongdoing at work completely anonymously.

You can talk to us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We won't trace or record your call. Or you can fill out our secure, anonymous online form.

The charity Crimestoppers has been receiving anonymous information about criminal activity for more than 25 years and we have never broken our anonymity promise. The public rely on us to listen and to keep their identity secure.

Tell us what you know about wrongdoing in the workplace, not who you are.

Charity Commission

Charity staff should tell the Charity Commission if they have evidence that there’s a risk of serious harm to a charity, its beneficiaries or assets. See the Charity Commission’s guidance for charity employees, volunteers and the general public on making a complaint about a charity.

Reporting serious incidents, including fraud, to the Charity Commission is specifically a requirement for Trustees, and they must continue to do this, and to report suspected Fraud to Action Fraud. The Charity Commission’s guidance for trustees can be viewed on their website.
