Our Fundraising Commitment
Love, Amelia is committed to upholding high standards of fundraising practice and acting with integrity. We are registered with The Fundraising Regulator and make a commitment to our funders, supporters, donors and the wider public to fundraise with integrity.

We will commit to high standards
