Alert: Hoax Emails

It has come to our attention that there is a group claiming to be from the Foundation which has been contacting charities saying that they will be given a grant – all branded with the Foundation information and pretending to be from our Chairman or a member of staff.  Please treat these as hostile and do not provide any information to them or open any attachments they may send – the Foundation does not communicate in this way and grants are only made to eligible UK organisations who have applied to us formally and been verified.

The relevant authorities have been notified and are working to trace the perpetrators.  Should you have any queries about the legitimacy of any correspondence received please contact the Foundation directly and we will be able to assist you.
