HOW WE'RE INSPIRING GIVING IN THE UK

We are helping to drive positive change and secure the future of giving by advocating on behalf of charities, reflecting their needs and concerns to decision makers and opinion formers in order to create a positive climate for charities to operate in. 

We work with government to improve the different ways that people are able to support charities, making it easier for people to give to the causes they care about. We engage with politicians across different levels of government to ensure that there is a supportive network of legislators putting charitable issues on the political agenda.  Our independent research on giving trends informs our campaigns and policy positions.

campaign SPOTLIGHT: GIVING TUESDAY

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

This year Giving Tuesday is on 27 November.

Join the movement and give - whether it’s some of your time, a donation, gift, or simply a thank-you to your charity supporters for all their help over the year.

Giving Tuesday is a great way to come together with your family, your community, your company or your organisation and find a way to give back.
