Find a charity and start donating

Who do you want to help?

Our charity search function allows you to choose from virtually every registered charity in the UK, as well as other organisations such as community groups which have a recognised charitable purpose.

Which charity should I donate to?

There are thousands of charities in the UK, and with so many worthy causes, it can be difficult to choose who to donate to. Some givers choose to support local charities, or ones which they can relate to in some way.

If you’re struggling to choose between a few charities, you may want to split you donation between organisations. We also suggest you research the charities you're thinking of giving to – that way, you can see how your donation will likely be spent, and how much support they have overall.
