Help individuals and families in desperate need across Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire to have the essential items we all deserve for a decent standard of living.

Charity Link works to ensure that people in financial hardship are dry, warm, clean, safe and fed.

We improve wellbeing, dignity, and standards of living by providing essential items, such as clothing (including school uniforms), beds, white goods, and - in emergencies - help with food and utilities.

We work with 250 charities and community organisations, in order to get help to those who need it, when they need it.

And our innovative way of working – unlocking funds from charitable trusts – means we make your money work harder.

For every £10 you donate, we provide £50 of essential items to individuals and families in need.

Together we can make a massive difference.

 

In the last three months together, we have helped 1791 people, including 761 children and provided £286,665 of support.

That's 1643 items to help improve vulnerable people's lives.
