2017/18 Annual Service Evaluation

WYCAS is always keen to receive the views of our service users to learn where we have done well and also where we could have done better.   We would like your assistance in evaluating the impact of our work. Your comments and feedback are essential in helping us to ensure that our services continue to be in line, and develop with your needs.  If our support has been helpful any feedback you feel able to give which shows the value and impact our work has had on your organisation is also extremely useful.  If we have worked with you during 2017/18 you will have received a short survey to ask for your views about the service we gave you.

Claiming Gift Aid

Last month a new report came out which found that charities were not claiming around £600m worth of Gift Aid that is out there. This is mostly from small charities who are not registered or do not maximize their income. The Charity Finance Group have free materials on Gift Aid which you can download from their website.

The law is changing - new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will be here soon

One of the areas that these regulations cover is consent for data to be processed for one or more specific purposes, for example receiving marketing information.

We have taken the decision to re-establish consent to receive our marketing information and so we will be sending you an email inviting you to give that positive consent shortly so please look out for that – we will lose touch with you without that consent.
