Fundraising promise and complaints

We are so incredibly grateful to every single person who supports us. Whether through donations, taking part in our events or volunteering time, our supporters are at the heart of everything we do. Your gifts of time and money make possible the invaluable work we undertake with young people, their families and support networks.

As such, we want you to feel completely confident about supporting us and we want it to be a positive and rewarding experience when you do. That is why we are members of the Fundraising Regulator and have signed up to their Fundraising Promise.

We are committed to the Fundraising Promise and to treating donors and the public with respect, fairness, honesty, and clarity in our fundraising activities. We will keep our fundraising practices continually under review in line with best charity practice.
