  • We are committed to delivering best practice on data protection and privacy, as laid out in our Fundraising and Communications Data Protection and Privacy Policy.
  • We are organisational members of the Institute of Fundraising and therefore committed to its Code of Fundraising Practice.
  • We adhere strictly to fundraising and data protection legislation and guidelines.
  • We take prompt action if we find any failure to meet these standards.

  • We will never to sell your data to any third party.
