  • If you work for us, even in a voluntary capacity – to communicate with you and to safeguard vulnerable children and vulnerable adults.

  • Who do we share information with?

    In line with our beliefs, we do not share or swap your information with any other organisation. However, we may have a legal duty to pass on information if required by law or by a regulatory body. For example, a Gift Aid audit by the HMRC, or if asked for details by a law enforcement agency.
