Our commitment to supporters

Practical Action promises that we does not sell or take part in reciprocal arrangements which share the details of supporters, enquirers or any other data.

We do not undertake ‘cold calling’ or telemarketing to recruit new supporters. However, as an existing supporter we may call you from time to time, unless you have told us not to.
