How much does tenancy fraud cost us all – and what will drive all social housing providers to play their part in the fight against such fraud?

Tenancy fraud, often called social housing fraud, remains an enigma to much of the public. While some councils and Private Registered Providers (PRPs) take seriously their responsibility to prevent and detect tenancy fraud, others do little to tackle the threat and harm such fraud poses.

    Charity Fraud Awareness Week is a highlight of our year. It gives us the opportunity to come together as a sector and to also engage with our global organisation. We generally hold multiple events in various locations, including townhall meetings, training and quizzes. The engagement we’ve had internally has been fantastic.

    With charity fraud becoming ever more sophisticated, the time to keep the risks uppermost in our minds is now. Many charities and their staff and volunteers are under increased economic pressure. With new financial reporting obligations on fraud now in effect, charities must be supported with fraud prevention and detection. Every organisation is susceptible, charities are not immune to the risks, but by raising awareness and sharing vital resources we can tackle fraud, together. We’re proud to support Charity Fraud Awareness Week and once again urge charities to take the Fraud Pledge.
