Our supporter promise

Protecting our supporters and ensuring that you feel respected and valued is of the upmost important to us

21,000 people a year across England and Wales suffer from major traumatic injury. Lives changed in an instant: physically, emotionally, financially.

Day One Trauma Support does not receive any government funding. We rely on the generosity of people like you to be able to be by the side of major trauma patients and their families, from day one, and for as long as they need us.

We communicate with our supporters in many ways, including through letters, telephone calls and online via social media and our website.

We are hugely grateful to everyone who supports us and we want to make sure that everyone we come into contact with feels respected and valued.
