Charities in the UK play a vital role in society – they make a difference to millions of lives in the UK and across the world.
They can only make the difference they do because of you, whether you’re volunteering, donating goods or money, sponsoring a friend in a marathon, attending a fundraising event, or spreading the word.
Charities also use their professional expertise to achieve the best possible impact for their causes.
We want to make sure you can find answers to any questions you may have about how they work.
