Local Charities Day builds on the work of the recently published Civil Society Strategy, which is committed to enhancing relationships between businesses, charities and local areas, to help communities grow.

Local Charities Day 14th December 2018 

This year, they are highlighting the importance of giving by encouraging people to pledge their time to a local charity, alongside championing the phenomenal and life-changing work of local charities, while shining a huge spotlight on local charity champions – the unsung heroes who always go the extra mile for their charity, the people and causes they support.

Nominate your Local Charity Champions

They’ve launched a dedicated area on their website for you to nominate and celebrate your Local Charities Champions – the people who always go the extra mile for their local charity. You can use the form on the Local Charities Champions page to add them to the site and say thank you for their dedication.

#PledgeYOURtime

There is a dedicated area for people to pledge their time to support their local charities. Please do help spread the word amongst your networks and those who support you to help get as many hours pledged as possible ahead of 14 December.

Other ways to get involved

There have been lots of fantastic guest blogs from charities supporting #LocalCharitiesDay in previous years, summarising their work and the difference they make to people in their communities. If you’d like to submit one this year please do get in touch.

And don’t forget, you can also tell them in one brief sentence about your work alongside an image of your charity and they’ll create a dedicated I’m supporting Local Charities Day graphic for you to share on your social media channels.

Do get in touch with the team at localcharitiesday@culture.gov.uk if they can be of further help and thanks once again for supporting the day.
