About your Donations:
Where and how they are used
Any donations we receive support the running of the Support Redditch Emergency Network in accordance with our constitution. This enables us to deliver a range of rapid interventions, such as our food support programme. We put as much money as possible onto the ground where it’s needed.
Our Trustees are unpaid and do not even claim expenses back.
Does anyone get paid?
We sometimes pay workers on a self-employed short-term contract basis for specific roles that we have been unable to fill on a voluntary basis.
Do the Trustees get paid?
No. The Trustees are not paid and do not even claim their own out-of-pocket expenses at this moment in time. Trustees so far have put a lot of time, their own money and their own goods into the charity.
Does the money go to any other groups?
We only pay any other groups for goods and services they render as part of a formal written supplier agreement we have in place with them. If there is no agreement in place then no payment is possible.
Can I get my money back?
Whilst it’s difficult to return a donation freely given we will return any donations if asked.
