Endometriosis UK Supporter promise 

Endometriosis UK is committed to fundraising in an honest and transparent way. We rely on the generosity of our supporters to continue our work to reduce diagnosis times, improve access to treatment and provide support to those affected by endometriosis. 

Our commitment to you 

As a supporter of Endometriosis UK, you are putting your trust in us, and we believe that donating to and fundraising for us should be a positive and rewarding experience.  

We promise to act within the law, be open and honest, and ask for support in a respectful and considerate manner. We promise to treat our supporters with the highest level of respect, and ensure that their preferences are upheld and that any financial request is made in a timely, polite and appropriate manner. 

We make the following promises to our supporters
