Inside the campaign to save South London's Gorne Wood

“London only has half the green space it needs ... so spaces like this one are incredibly valuable. Despite a long history of public use, the community is in danger of losing access to a unique green space” - Campaign to Protect Rural England.

How Cardiff Foodbank is making a huge difference to its community.

Since the pandemic, Cardiff Foodbank has raised the profile of their need for finance as well as food – and Localgiving has played a key role in this strategic focus, helping them raise over £700k through our platform and supporting 500+ monthly donors.

We believe that local is better. Every single day we are helping thousands of UK community groups do amazing things. Since 2009 we have distributed £40M in online donations, with £5M in match funding given to over 4,000 local organisations.

The demand for grant funding in the UK’s third sector has never been greater. Giving by all UK foundations is worth over £8bn per year across multiple sectors and causes. Today’s changemakers need access to simple, streamlined, efficient and measurable funding process, and that's what we deliver.
