Vulnerable Person Policy

Fundraising activities, public support and public trust are all essential to Shipston Home Nursing’s ability to achieve its overall objective of providing excellent care and compassion to adults with life limiting illnesses, and those who matter to them, within the communities we work.

We believe that giving to your chosen causes should be a positive experience for all, whether an existing donor or potential new supporter. Everyone should have the opportunity to donate if they are able to, but Shipston Home Nursing recognises that it is inevitable that some of the many people we engage with will not always have the capacity at the point of the interaction to fully understand the nature of the donation they are being asked to give or the consequences of making that donation.

We also understand that people in vulnerable circumstances may need further support before deciding whether to donate to Shipston Home Nursing.

We recognise that we have an obligation to protect those in vulnerable circumstances. Whenever we suspect that someone we engage with is lacking capacity or is in vulnerable circumstances, we will take steps to terminate the contact. We will do this in a way which seeks to protect the person while protecting their dignity and having due regard for any desire they have expressed to support Shipston Home Nursing.

Whenever a fundraiser suspects that a person may be vulnerable, our approach is to immediately end the engagement. Shipston Home Nursing will provide alternative options for the individual to engage with us once the conversation has ended, thereby upholding their right to donate if they wish to and are able to do so.
