Yes, we are currently running private site and door to door fundraising campaigns. They are carried out by third party professional fundraisers across the UK in locations such as shopping centres, train stations and supermarkets and residential areas respectively. We use these methods of fundraising as they allow us to talk a range of people across the UK about our work.
We work with partner agencies in our face to face fundraising. We carefully select these fundraising partners and only work with those who are members of the Institute of Fundraising to ensure our campaigns adhere to industry best practice.
We provide full training for all fundraisers and work with them closely to ensure they take the best approach and respect the wishes of the public. The fundraisers will be wearing Alzheimer’s Research UK branded clothing or tabards and carrying ID cards. They typically operate between 10.00am and 6.00pm on Private Sites and up to 8:30pm in residential areas.
We regularly mystery shop so that we can ensure everybody has a positive experience with the Fundraisers that are working on our behalf. We take any feedback about this activity from our Supporters very seriously and will act quickly if we have any doubts that our high standards are not being met.
