The Fundraising Standards Board (FSB)

The Fundraising Promise
We are members of the Fundraising Standards Board self-regulatory scheme. The Fundraising Standards Board works to ensure that organisations raising money from the public do so honestly and properly. As members of the scheme, we follow the Institute of Fundraising's Codes of Fundraising Practice and comply with the key principles embodied in the Codes and in this Promise. 

We are committed to high standards


We do all we can to ensure that fundraisers, volunteers and fundraising contractors working with us to raise funds comply with the Codes and with this Promise

We comply with the law including those that apply 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

We answer all reasonable questions about our fundraising activities and costs.

We are clear

We are clear about who we are, what we do and how your gift is used

We are respectful

We respect the rights, dignities and privacy of our supporters and beneficiaries

We will not put undue pressure on you to make a gift and if you do not want to give or wish to cease giving, we will respect your decision

If you tell us that you don’t want us to contact you in a particular way we will not do so

We are fair and reasonable

We take care not to use any images or words that cause unjustifiable distress or offence

We take care not to cause unreasonable 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

We have a complaint procedure, a copy of which is available on request. If we cannot resolve your complaint, we accept the authority of the Fundraising Standards Board to make a final adjudication.
