By giving a donation you will help to provide essential items for those most in need in our local communities. Due to our unique way of working (untapping funds from charitable trusts) for every £10 donated we can provide £50 of essential items, so your gift will really help to change lives.

We gratefully accept gifts in Wills
We are extremely grateful to anyone who considers leaving a kind gift to support Charity Link's work in their will.
Remembering Charity Link in your will helps to ensure that we can continue to support the most vulnerable people in our community in the years to come.
We've been making a difference since 1876 and unfortunately our services - helping people in hardship and crisis to have a decent standard of living so they can reach their full potential - are needed more than ever and will be in the years ahead.
Your gift (whether this is £50 or £5m!) will make a difference and will be put to good use helping to change the lives of people in need.
It is important for everyone to have a will so that your wishes are met. There are free will writing companies or you can speak to an expert will writer or solicitor. Leaving a gift to charity may also have tax benefits for you.
If you'd like to ask any questions or would like to notify us of your intention to leave a gift, we would love to hear from you.
In the last three months together, we have helped 1778 people, including 717 children and provided £535,349 of support.
That's 2053 items to help improve vulnerable people's lives.
