You have a choice whether you wish to provide your phone number/s and email address to other members. Your address is used solely and purely for our purposes and is never, on any account, given to any other member/s.

Information we send you

As a member of friendsfirst you will receive regular mailings from us. These are always sent in plain white envelopes and there is nothing on the envelope to show that it comes from friendsfirst. We respect your privacy.

Telephone calls to you from the friendsfirst office

When we try to contact you, we will only say it is friendsfirst calling when we are speaking to you personally. If we are speaking to anyone else in your household we will not disclose that it is friendsfirst calling. We respect the
confidence that you have put in us to be discrete.
