The Charity Preference Service

Supporting Sustainable And Ethical Fundraising

How long will it take for my preferences to become active?

  • Most campaigns take around two to three months to plan and execute. Therefore you may need to allow this amount of time for all your prefereces to become fully effective.
Will this stop all unwanted approaches?

  • This cannot stop you receiving unaddressed mail from charities as there is no way to differentiate charity from non charity mail. If you do not want to receive unaddressed mail at all then this can be done by contacting Royal Mail directly.
What if I want to stop communications from non-charities?
