We couldn't do the work we do without you, which is why we value your trust so highly. It's also why, when you make the decision to support us, we make this promise to you:

  1. We’ll use your donations in the best way possible. For every £1 you give, 72p is spent enabling people to transform their lives with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, 1p is spent on governance and 27p is spent on fundraising*
  2. You can choose how often we contact you. Just call our Supporter Care team on 020 7793 4594 to let us know what you prefer.
  3. We’ll use your support to help deliver lasting solutions, not short-term fixes.
  4. We’ll share stories of the people you help.
  5. Together, we won’t stop until clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene are a normal part of everyday life for everyone, everywhere.

We’re run by a team of talented and experienced individuals, committed to changing normal for everyone, everywhere.

It’s important that we understand and protect people in vulnerable circumstances, including those who might want to support us.

We work with three telephone fundraising agencies, so we can talk to you about our work and plan for the future.
