- For five days a sector-wide social media campaign was run to remind charities about the risks of fraud. The week concluded with the second national charity fraud conference which was held in London on Friday 28 October. Throughout the week we asked: Do you use the F-word? and encouraged charities to start a conversation about fraud.
- In the lead up to the week we issued a few tweets to get people interested and talking.
