Working with funders and industry partners policy

The aim of The Migraine Trust is to promote research into migraine and reduce its burden.

To further its aims, the Trust seeks funding and support from a variety of sources such as from individuals, charitable trusts and the corporate sector. Our latest annual report and accounts can be accessed here. We are registered with the Fundraising Regulator and committed to good practice in accordance with the Fundraising Promise and the Code of Fundraising Practice, as well as the regulations and policies set by the Charity Commission and the Scottish Charity Regulator. The Trust acts with openness, transparency and in an inclusive manner with regards to all our work with all funders and industry partners. We recognise that collaborative working with corporate partners, can significantly help to further the Trust’s aims. By working in partnership and sharing intelligence we will help to improve the lives of people with migraine.

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that in seeking and securing funding the Trust has a clearly understood way of working, underpinned by high ethical principles.
