The Lobbying Act

Ritchie Cogan
Ritchie Cogan2nd January 2015



There’s growing concern amongst NGOs about what exactly can be said and what can’t be said in online communications, in light of the new Lobbying Act.  In this short briefing note, we offer clear guidance for ways of ensuring that online campaigns comply with the restrictions placed on charities by the new legislation.


The briefing recommends that all NGOs review their social media campaigning activities on a regular basis even if they decide not to register under the Act. All staff should be provided with social media guidelines and a named person within the organisation to contact for advice.
