Fundraising Standards

As a member of Charities Institute Ireland we subscribe to their Triple Lock, which means we are compliant with best practice in ethical fundraising.

Barnardos is also fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising 2008 and the newly developed Guidelines for Charitable Organisations on Fundraising for the Public.  

This new statement was developed by the Charities Regulator and exists to provide charities in Ireland with a Fundraising Code of Practice.

The purpose of this statement is to:

  • Improve fundraising practice;
  • Promote high levels of accountability and transparency by organisations fundraising from the public;
  • Provide clarity and assurances to donors and prospective donors about the organisations they support.

Barnardos believes we meet the standards the Code of Practice sets out.
