Covid-19 update April 2021: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public for general browsing. We’re still rehoming virtually and we’re here to help if you can no longer care for your dog. Please don’t visit, or travel to our centres unless you have already been matched with a dog, or are leaving donations at one of our contact-free drop off points.

Children and vulnerable people

Children’s personal information

We are very happy to have the support of children and young people who want to fundraise for us, or who engage with the work of our Education Team through https://www.learnwithdogstrust.org.uk/ or in schools.

For those under 16, where appropriate we may seek consent from a parent, guardian or carer before collecting their information.

Vulnerable People

We care about the safety of vulnerable persons and while we welcome their support, we also work hard to ensure we are meeting their needs, while upholding their rights.

We abide by regulatory guidance on fundraising with people in vulnerable circumstances.

If you think Dogs Trust has interacted with a vulnerable person and have any concerns, please get in touch with our Customer Services team. Note that we may ask for identification if you are acting on behalf of a vulnerable person.

We might collect information to enable us to recognise and respond to the needs of a vulnerable person. You can find out more here Sensitive Data
