Keeping in touch

It is only by keeping in touch with our supporters that we can achieve what we do, whether during emergencies or day to day. We try to do this in a number of ways, by sending letters of appeal, e-mailing and sending texts when a crisis unfolds, or calling to raise awareness of the importance of regular gifts. To help us communicate with you in a way that suits you, please complete the sections below, indicating your preferences. Please be aware that if you opt out of all communications, we will not be able to let you know how your gifts are helping or get in touch with you during an emergency.

Fundraising door to door

There is currently no central list that allows individual households to ‘opt out’ of house to house calls. If you would rather our fundraisers did not knock, then please display a sign on your door. Although this may not be effective in deterring all cold callers, anyone calling with legitimate purpose should observe this notice. If you have any concerns about a vulnerable person being called on, please call our Supporter Care team on 0300 456 11 55 who will be happy to help in whatever way they can.

Your privacy

The British Red Cross is committed to privacy and will use personal data for the purpose it was collected or other legitimate purposes we tell you about: for example, to provide goods, services or information you have requested or to administer donations or services we provide. We may also analyse data we collect to better understand the people who support us or those who use or deliver our services. Sometimes this means us combining that data with information from reliable public sources. Our research allows us to tailor communications and services in a more focused and cost effective way, as well as better meeting your needs and the needs of others like you. However, we will never do this in a way that intrudes on personal privacy and will not use your data for a purpose that conflicts with previously expressed privacy preferences. For full details about how we use personal data, our legal basis for doing so and your privacy rights, please see our Privacy Notice online.
