Plan International UK
Plan International UK is a children’s charity that’s been around for 80 years. We strive to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world.
We recognise the power and potential of every single child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And its girls who are most affected. We encourage and help children take an active role in finding solutions to their problems and realising their rights and their full potential.
93,000 children in 50 countries are sponsored through Plan International UK.
When you sponsor a child with Plan International UK, you’re not just helping one child - you’re making improvements that benefit everyone in their community and beyond. Projects include building schools, digging wells, training teachers and providing vaccinations. Sponsorship educates an entire community, it improves medical infrastructure, it provides water and sanitation and ensures that a community is prepared for disaster, should an emergency happen.
Seafarers UK has been helping people in the maritime community for over 100 years, by providing vital support to seafarers in need and their families, and to those in education or training who are preparing to work or serve at sea. The charity does this by giving grants to organisations and projects that make a real difference to people’s lives, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
Your support will help fund free advice and support for seafarers, when they are injured at sea, have mental health issues or problems with housing or debt, or help to ensure that young seafarers have access to the best quality training and safety, or help to improve the quality of life for retired seafarers and veterans by providing shelter and care, as well as some daily essentials that a small pension (or none) cannot cover.
