Large charities may be forced to sign up to a new watchdog under changes being introduced by the Government to tackle rogue fundraisers.
Charities will at first be given the opportunity to voluntarily sign up to the new regulatory system but ministers will have the power to compel them if they fail to protect supporters from undue pressure to donate to good causes.
The new fundraising watchdog is aimed at making sure large charities stick to a strict code of good practice, including protecting the identity of donors.
Under the new regime anyone who is inundated with fundraising marketing material from charities will be able to press "reset" and stop receiving this material.
