DSC uses information on charities to compile and produce this website. Where data from the Charity Commission’s Register of Charities is used or reproduced, it is done so under the terms of the Open Government License 3.0 (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/3/).
Where information relating to individuals (contact details or trustee names) is present in a charity entry, that information has been taken from either the Register of Charities, Companies House, the charity’s own published information, or from the charity themselves. With regard to GDPR, the basis on which DSC processes that data is Legitimate Interest, with such information serving only to provide a complete profile of each charity, and the means by which they may be contacted with requests for funding.
The purpose of this website is to provide information and advice on armed forces charities and other relevant forms of support for voluntary sector organisations and provide useful links. It is the responsibility of the user to determine the legal basis for any subsequent processing of this information.
