We aim to be clear when we collect your data and not do anything you wouldn’t reasonably expect.  

By April 2018, we will be moving to an ‘opt-in only’ communication policy. This means that we will only send marketing communications to those that have explicitly stated that they are happy for us to do so via their preferred channel(s) (email, SMS, phone or post). 

Our marketing communications include information about our new projects, case studies and opportunities to get involved with the Trust. If you would like to receive such communications but have not opted in please contact us on 0208 8326 7030 or at communications@brentfordfccst.com
