How we spend donations
All donations go to the work of the charity in helping older people in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Merthyr Tydfil and Bridgend. We have very efficient administration processes and hold regular reviews to ensure we make the most of the charity’s money. We have rules over how we manage staff expenses, for example our staff would never travel first class. We are committed to providing the best possible service to older people in our area.
