The Wordsworth Trust is committed to maintaining high standards of fundraising, and to helping to maintain public confidence in fundraising across the charity sector.

We have been participating in fundraising self-regulation since 2013, and we are currently registered with the Fundraising Regulator.  

We also welcome feedback (negative and positive) about our fundraising activities.  Any complaints about our fundraising, or any other aspect of our work, will be handled with reference to our complaints procedure

We do not carry out any of the fundraising activities that have come under recent criticism. We don't sell to or exchange with other charities information about our donors, and we keep our donors' details secure at all times.  We don't engage in door-to-door or street collecting, and none of our donations income is paid in commission to profit-making fundraising agencies.  

We thank all our generous donors for helping the Wordsworth Trust to celebrate Wordsworth's life at Dove Cottage and its legacy for people of all ages and backgrounds.
