British Red Cross
The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.
We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and personal emergencies both overseas and here in the UK.
For many people in crisis throughout the world, the Red Cross could be the only real chance of hope. Often we are the only humanitarian organisation able to reach people when conflict, famine or disaster has destroyed families and communities.
The need for our UK services, as with our international work, continues to grow. In 2014, we helped 74,500 vulnerable people in the UK settle back home after a stay in hospital through our Support at Home service.
A rapid response to crisis really depends on the support of our donors, so regular gifts are essential to the British Red Cross and the people who rely on our help. By making a donation to us via Hands on Payroll Giving, you can help to save lives when disaster strikes. With your support we can continue to be there, bringing help and hope to people across the world and here in the UK.

Thank you for your support.

Children in Crisis
Children in Crisis was established in 1993 in the UK to give children in some of the world's poorest countries the education they need to help transform their lives.
Our vision: All children receive the learning needed for their flourishing and wellbeing
Our mission: Where resources are few, where education is needed to heal the nation, and where it is too remote for others, our aim is to support children to read, write, think, pursue their life goals and contribute positively to their communities.
"We shape approaches which are not too costly but are effective and potentially scalable, not only by us, but by poorly resourced local NGOs and local authorities. We know that the environments we work in are unstable and uncertain, so we ensure that our solutions are resilient, and can be adapted by local communities if things go wrong". Koy Thomson, Chief Executive of Children in Crisis.

Sense International is a leading global charity supporting people with deafblindness in Bangladesh, India, Kenya, Nepal, Peru, Romania, Tanzania and Uganda. Children with deafblindness in these countries desperately need to receive education and healthcare. Without this, many will lead short, lonely lives.
For over 20 years we have been working in partnership with local organisations to provide expert support and services to people with deafblindness. We demonstrate to governments that people with deafblindness are worth investing in. And we put support in place so that we can walk away and leave solid expertise behind.
With this support, children with deafblindness can learn to communicate, to develop self-care skills, receive an education and perhaps find a job. Rather than being excluded they can thrive and live as valued human beings.

What we do
We want to eliminate avoidable blindness and get equality for people with disabilities.
We help blind people to see, prevent others from going blind unnecessarily, and support people to live independently if their sight loss cannot be undone.
The causes of avoidable blindness go further than eye disease, so we do not just slap a sticking-plaster on the problem – we campaign to make a fairer world and change lives for the long term.
