Our commitment to protecting vulnerable donors or those in vulnerable circumstances

  • We’re committed to offering the very best standards of donor and supporter care and we do all we can to safeguard their privacy, dignity and well-being
  • If we believe that a donor is vulnerable or finds themselves in precarious circumstances that could affect their capacity or ability to make a decision about supporting us financially or in other ways (e.g. after a bereavement; a period of illness; redundancy etc.), we will do all we can to protect that supporter
  • We will return a donation if we believe the donor lacked the capacity to make an informed and proper decision
  • Our policy for assisting supporters in vulnerable circumstances follows best practice in line with Section 1.3. of the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice which can be found here
