The Trailer At Ilford

We are very grateful to Beryl Cairns, who has kindly kept our trailer at her home in Ilford, so that donated goods can be left there. Beryl is now moving, and so will no longer be able to keep the trailer. Please do not take any further goods there. We have not yet been able to make any alternative arrangements for keeping the trailer elsewhere, but we will let you know when we have done so.

We wish Beryl every blessing in her new home.

Data Protection - Important Information

All charities and businesses must comply with new laws regarding data protection, known as GDPR. One new requirement is that we are able to demonstrate that everyone whose data we hold (names, addresses, email and phone numbers) has given permission for us to store this data. For this reason, we are asking everyone on our database to complete and return a consent form, so that we have this permission on record. You can obtain a consent form by clicking here .Please print off the form and send it to us, or scan it and email it to us.

Only supply the data you wish us to have (for example, you do not need to give your telephone number if you do not wish us to have it). If you receive your newsletter from someone other than ourselves (e.g. it is passed on to you from a friend or someone at church), and you are therefore not on our database, you do not need to complete a form. Completing and returning the form will also ensure that we have your information correct and up to date. If you do not complete a form then unfortunately we will have to remove you from our database.

Another Fundraising Concert

A concert by ‘Duodecimo’ chamber choir was held on Saturday 22nd June, at St. Margarets Church, Burnage, Manchester. A grand total of £625 was raised for the Falconer Trust. During the evening Duncan Stansfield was able to give a short talk about the Falconer Home and the work of the Falconer Trust. We are very grateful to all the choir members, to Duncan, and to everyone who made the evening possible.

Are you able to organise a concert, coffee morning, quiz night or other fundraising event? Please see our ‘How Can I Help’ page for ideas and resources.

Update on the 2019 Visit

In July Ken, Pat, their grandson Jonathan, and Neil visited the Falconer Home. There were, as usual, many challenges. A great deal of time was spent addressing the power and water issues, as well as discussing various matters regarding the future of the Home. A more in-depth report will foow soon.

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Finance Policy

The Falconer Trust has produced a formal Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. We recognise the importance of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the children at the Home during our visits, and providing a framework for dealing with any potential issues which may arise. The staff at the Home have adopted a similar policy, so that the same level of protection and transparency is in place at all times. To view our policy click here. We have also adopted a Financial Management Policy, to ensure that all financial matters are handled in a transparent and rigorous manner.
