Society needs fundraisers that help non-profits support issues that Governments neglect.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I've been a fundraiser for over 20 years. I believe in the principles of openness, accountability and transparency and I don't appreciate Grade suggesting that my professional behaviour is otherwise.

Thanks for adding your voice.

A man with a lack of understanding of, and contempt for people working in, a sector he is there to lead.

Personal opinion and hostility can't play a part in fundraising regulation. It's damaging the third sector and it will be the vulnerable people that rely on charities that lose out! #proudtobeafundraiser

Thanks for adding your voice.

A regulator should engage with his / her constituency. Like policing, regulation should be done with consent to be fully effective. Lord Grade has not shown himself capable of having the right conversations and contributing effectively in this important role, at a very important time for self-regulation.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I welcome robust critic but we need an impartial regulator, not a judgemental one, someone who empathises and is not derogatory or misleading.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I value impartiality
