Is your local charity or community organisation eligible for Localgiving?
Localgiving is a unique UK website for small, local charities and community groups who are working to improve local communities and benefit the people who live there.

LocalgivingÕs mission is to support small, locally focused charities and community groups; we do not allow national charities to register with us.
All organisations on Localgiving must be for the benefit of a local or regional community and cannot use the platform to raise funds for national or international projects.
If your organisation operates at a local / regional level, but youÕre part of a wider national body, you can still register with Localgiving providing you have a separate bank account and level of autonomy for the services you provide.
Our charitable aims are not solely for the advancement of religion or party politics.

Localgiving understands that faith groups are a very important part of the local community and voluntary sector. Faith groups are able to join Localgiving, provided that they are providing services open to the community and do not intend to use funds raised through Localgiving for the advancement of religion.
Organisations that work solely for the benefit of medical research are not able to join Localgiving; however, if they are providing direct benefit to the local population they are able to use the Localgiving platform
