Introduction

KidCare4U treats privacy and confidentiality very seriously. We are a charitable incorporated organisation with relationships with fundraisers, staff, volunteers, supporters, and partners so we use personal information on a day-to-day basis in order to fulfil our mission to support the low-income families from diverse communities where language is a barrier. Our use of personal information allows us to make better decisions, fundraise more efficiently and ultimately helps us to achieve our mission.

We have developed this privacy notice in order to be as transparent as possible about the personal information that we collect and use. We comply with all aspects of the UK’s data protection legislation, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK’s own legislation, including Data Protection Act 2018.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about our privacy practices.
