Improving the lives of those most in need

Due to our unique way of working, a £40 donation can provide a cooker for a family in need… donate now here 

Due to COVID-19 even more local families are going without. Many families are facing hardship due to the continued impact of the pandemic – and your support will make a real difference.

Charity Link has been working for over 140 years to ensure that those in need are warm, safe and fed… that everyone has the basics in life that we all deserve, no matter what crisis, illness, disability or difficulty they may be experiencing. We work to make a difference throughout Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire.

Charity Link works in a unique way which means that for every £10 raised or donated, we can untap £50 from Charitable Trusts. All of that £50 goes to provide essential items for people in need.

This means that:

• your donation of £5 would help to heat a home for a week
• your donation of £10 would provide food for a family for a week
• your donation of £25 would help to buy a bed….

A cooker may seem like a relatively small item, but imagine not being able to provide a hot meal for your family. Your donation of £40 would actually help to provide a cooker so that a vulnerable local family could enjoy hot meals together.  

With a baby and having escaped domestic violence during the pandemic, Jaya is struggling with her mental health and is living on a very low income.  Although she has been provided with accommodation, Jaya has been staying with her mum, who she helps to care for, as the allocated property is unfurnished and she can’t afford to buy the items needs.  Thanks to our supporters, we’ve been able to provide Jaya with a cooker  – an essential item which will help her to start to build a new home.
