PACT statement on charity fundraising

Parents And Children Together (PACT) is a registered charity and relies on fundraising and donations to enable it to continue its work with vulnerable children and families. At PACT we have been saddened by recent headlines about vulnerable people being targeted by aggressive fundraising methods.

We would like to reassure all our supporters and donors that PACT does not use, and has never used, these methods of fundraising.

  • We do not, and will not, pass on contact details of our supporters and donors to anyone else, including other charities.
  • We respect the wishes of supporters and donors who ask for no further contact from us, and we adhere to Data Protection Law.
  • We do not employ fundraising or marketing agencies to target people by telephone, or in the street, to persuade them to set up regular donations to PACT.

PACT is a member of the Fundraising Standards Board and strictly follows the Institute of Fundraising’s Codes of Practice. We also comply with the key principles embodied in our Fundraising Promise.

PACT has a small fundraising team which works hard to gain funding for our work from trusts and foundations and to support people who choose to make donations or take part in fundraising activities in whatever way they can.

We are fortunate to have many people who believe in PACT’s work and do some incredible things to raise money for us. We would like to thank all of you who run marathons, skydive, do sponsored walks, cake sales, organise events or have become a Friend of PACT. We are so very grateful for your support.

If you’d like to find out how you could support PACT please take a look at our website or get in touch with Laura Senior at laura.senior@pactcharity.org.

We won’t put any pressure on you but we’d love to hear from you!
