Fundraising Promise & Complaints
We are incredibly grateful to every single person who supports us. Whether through donations, taking part in our events or volunteering time, our supporters are at the heart of everything we do. Your gifts of time and money make possible, the invaluable work we undertake with those diagnosed with Functional Neurological Disorder, their families and support networks.
As such, we want you to feel completely confident about supporting us and we want it to be a positive and rewarding experience when you do. That is why we are members of the Fundraising Regulator and have signed up to their Fundraising Promise.
