The Rose Community Group is dedicated to helping people who reach out and ask for help. We are aware that there is always a potential that we could be targeted by individuals who are not honest about their situation and may be asking for financial assistance under false pretences. We will do all we can to verify the facts we are given by checking individual’s previous online history and coordinating with local people and groups, wherever possible.
However, we will not allow the nefarious behaviour of a tiny number of individuals to stop us from supporting people who genuinely need and want our help.
We urge each person who is considering supporting our appeals, or helping a person we tweet about, to satisfy themselves that they are happy to do so. If, for any reason you are uncomfortable or unhappy about supporting anyone then you should not do so. Please do not feel obliged to donate money to any of the people we support: individual donations must always be a matter of personal choice.
