Our social media

We’re keen to ensure that we use as many methods as possible to help keep supporters informed and up to date.

You can learn about our latest activities, wider Gurkha news, organisation news, events and fundraising opportunities by using social media. Why not connect with us on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn?

Please remember anything you say in social media is in the public domain, so we would always recommend you contact us directly if you wish to discuss something personal or sensitive. You may find it useful to read our social media guidelines below.

We monitor all of our social media channels on a continuous basis. If we find content that we feel does not meet our guidelines, then we will remove it and potentially disable your access to our profile.
