We process “personal data” and/or “special category data” (as defined in data protection legislation) as part of the membership services, fund-raising and/or in our administration.

All data are held securely and for as long as they relate to the reasons for collection and/or if there is a statutory retention period. Security of data and confidentiality are very important to us to protect everyone involved in our services.

You may request a copy of the personal information we may hold about you – this should be submitted in writing or email. Please include enough information to enable us to identify you and search for appropriate data.
