WE THINK CHARITY MATTERS

Whilst the economic climate continues to struggle in the UK and despite the ongoing approach of BREXIT, our population remains consistent as a nation of givers. With incredible generosity to charity through national fundraising campaigns such as Comic Relief, Children in Need, Sport Relief and Soccer Aid, we can be proud as a nation for the support and kindness we provide each year.

National fundraising campaigns are an important and fantastic way of raising funds and awareness; however, it is also more important than ever to consider supporting charity directly.

DO YOU THINK CHARITY MATTERS?

A reduction in property value, a fall in investment yield and the threat of a rise in unemployment figures can all have an adverse impact on a charities income. If you think Charity Matters you can help your favourite charity so the negative social and economic factors are expunged.

You may wish to provide a one-off donation, choose to give a regular gift to charity or, after you have remembered those closest to you, decide to leave a gift to charity in your Will.

Many people already generously support charity, yet others would like to give but don't know where to search for a charity or how to choose a charity to support. We have compiled a comprehensive list of UK registered charities so that you can find an organisation that supports and benefits the causes that you recognise, care about and respect the most - because Charity Matters.

There are so many charities that need your help and support to continue their vital work. From hospice care for children and adults and organisations assisting people with physical impairments or mental health issues, through practical support or to improve wellbeing. National and international animal welfare charities, environmental issues - to our treasured heritage, arts and the vital support for the homeless or those requiring rehabilitation.

In addition to the diverse range of charities which need our compassion and kindness through regular donations and the gift of time, the organisations striving to help communities in peril also need dedicated support at the time of tragedy. Extreme situations and natural disasters which lead to the destruction of our environment, homes and our people.

It's easy to watch from the comfort of our own homes in awe and disbelief as media coverage shows us events as they unfold: tornadoes, hurricanes, unprecedented flooding; tsunami, earthquakes. Despite our advances in technology and engineering, we are often left powerless when it comes to the stability of our natural world. Yet we continue to witness a rise in sea levels, the extinction of wildlife and an ocean of plastic suffocating the planet, through the destructive hand of man.

It seems impossible to think we could live in a world of peace and stability. However, whilst international disasters occur all too frequently, the aid and care we provide really can make a positive difference as people strive to rebuild their lives through the generosity of your kindness and support.

Please note that the Charity Matters website is currently being updated and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Our website will be back online in full by 30th December 2019.
