What does Localgiving mean by 'Local'?

Localgiving's mission is to support locally focused charities and community groups. We are dedicated to providing funding opportunities and advocacy for local charities and community groups in the UK.

As such, we do not allow national or international charities to join Localgiving. All organisations on Localgiving must be for the benefit of a local or regional community and cannot use the platform to raise funds for national or international projects. If an organisation operates at a local / regional level, but is part of a wider national body, it can still register with Localgiving providing it has a separate bank account and level of autonomy for the services it provides.


If you are unsure of your groups eligibility please contact the Help Desk on 0300 111 2340.
