Safe Giving Advice

31 Jan 2014 - 11:20 by michelle.foster

The Manchester Kurdish Association have been working with Greater Manchester Police to promote "Safer Giving" message.

Charitable giving is important to all of us and can help improve people’s lives tremendously. However, sadly some organisations or individuals purport to collect for humanitarian causes but use donations to support organisations that support violent extremism.

The intention of the Safe Giving Advice is to ensure that residents in Greater Manchester are better informed and are therefore able to make safe decisions about charitable giving.
