Validation is an important part of our commitment to provide local communities with a trusted source of local charities that work towards legitimately charitable aims.
At Localgiving, we welcome not only groups registered with the Charity Commission, but also community groups who aren’t registered charities. With this in mind, the goal of our validation process is to provide supporters with the peace of mind enabling them to give with confidence - and to give more!
