The type of personal information we collect:

When you give it to us directly 

We may ask for personal information about you, including your name, date of birth, email address, postal address, telephone number, the local authority that you live in and demographic information such as ethnicity and gender. 

Times when we would do this include when you ask about our activities, take part in our activities, sign up for e-newsletters/bulletins, tell us your story, take part in our research, call our helpline, order products or services, donate, fundraise on our behalf, or complete an online survey. 

In some circumstances, such as when you get in touch with our listening ear service, we may ask about your children, including their ages, names, disability or medical condition, other people in your household, the type of education your child receives and your housing costs. You will always have the option to not disclose this information, as the service provides to support you.

You may also provide personal information directly to us when you get in touch with our email.

Occasionally, your information may be useful for us to find out why you are supporting us as this helps us understand the benefits of our work. We will also sometimes ask for feedback in multiple ways, these will always be optional.

We may get your information via a referral from a third party, such as another charity or local authority, but they should ask for your consent before sharing that information with us and we will seek confirmation that they have done so.
