Help the homeless

Many people who are homeless - whether rough-sleeping or without permanent accommodation - lack access to washing facilities and santiser products. They may also be unable to self-isolate. They are therefore more vulnerable to the virus - charities including Crisis, Shelter and Centrepoint exist to help these people.

Support the vulnerable

Whilst self-isolating is critical to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it also presents a risk for victims of loneliness or domestic abuse. By donating to charities such as Age UK, British Red Cross and Refuge, you can help vulnerable people across the country.

Support our NHS team

The NHS is coming under a huge amount of strain as our amazing healthcare professionals treat those who have contracted COVID-19, with many former employees returning to the NHS to help share the load.

You can help show your thanks for their incredible work by donating to NHS Charities Together, who support NHS staff, volunteers and trusts all across the country.

Help animal charities

The financial impact of COVID-19 has led to many pet owners turning to animal charities as they find themselves struggling to afford daily necessetities and vet fees.

Your donation to charities such as RSPCA, Cats Protection and Dogs Trust can help them cope with the increased demand for their services.
