  • We will only ever share your data with contractors when strictly necessary, for example during mailings or to get a list screened to check for deceased 
  • We work fully within the law, including legislation applying to data protection, health and safety and the environment  
  • We are honest and open  
  • We tell the truth and do not exaggerate  
  • We do what we say we are going to do  
  • We will answer all reasonable questions about our fundraising activities and costs when it is reasonable to do so.  

We are clear  

  • We are clear about who we are, what we do and how your gift is used  
  • Where we have a promotional agreement with a commercial company, we make clear how much of the purchase price we receive  
  • We give a clear explanation of how you can make a gift and amend a regular commitment  

We are respectful

  • If you inform us that you no longer wish us to contact you in a particular way, we will not do so

We are fair and reasonable

  • We take care not to cause nuisance or disruption   

We are accountable  

  • If you are unhappy with anything we’ve done whilst fundraising, you can contact us to make a complaint. A copy of our complaints procedure is available on request.
