The recent crisis in Ukraine has highlighted the plight facing refugees. At Localgiving we know that voluntary groups across the UK are already doing fantastic work to help vulnerable refugees from all over the world. Following the government's launch of the Homes for Ukraine scheme there will be much more to do in the coming weeks and months.

That's why Localgiving is offering a free six month trial to groups raising funds and providing vital support for refugees such as access to education, mental health services, food, hygiene products and clothes. 

Sign up by 31st May and we can have your charity online and ready to receive donations within 24 hours. Just use the promo code LOCALWELCOME in the membership payment section. This offer is open to organisations working with all refugees, whether from Ukraine or anywhere else, provided that they have not been an active Localgiving member in the last two years.

Our members have exclusive access to a number of grants, match funds and fundraising awards. Last year we provided extra funding to over 2,000 small charities and community groups.

Localgiving is far more than a fundraising platform:

  • Our members can access dedicated 1:1 fundraising support and advice from our trained fundraisers throughout their membership - both via our helpline and face to face.
  • Members have exclusive access to regular small grant programmes, match funding campaigns and cash prizes for our most successful fundraisers.
  • We work with key sector partners such as the FSI, Garfield Weston Foundation, DCMS and National Lottery Community Fund to provide training and mentoring specifically tailored to help small charities improve their fundraising capacity and capabilities.
  • We conduct regular research on the sustainability and character of the UK’s voluntary sector and actively advocate for the needs of local charities and community groups.
  • As a not-for-profit ourselves, we understand the need to balance sustainability and mission. All of our profits are reinvested back into Localgiving. It is vital to us that our members always have a reliable, intuitive, friendly service - with a human face.
