We start this year with immense gratitude for your donation to GlobalGiving’s UK Cost-of-Living Crisis Relief Fund. 

Because of your generosity, the UK Cost-of-Living Crisis Relief Fund issued 10 grants to high-impact and community-led nonprofit partners responding to rising community needs during this crisis. 

Here is a brief description of some of the charities and communities you’ve supported. You can find a full list of nonprofits receiving a grant from the UK Cost-of-Living Crisis Relief Fund at the end of this report.  

  1. Leeds Women’s Aid protects women and families from the damage that domestic violence and abuse inflicts on their lives. The cost-of-living crisis has been devastating for individuals in these circumstances. Leeds Women’s Aid is building additional emergency accommodation, piloting a safety app, and staffing their domestic abuse helpline. 
  2. The Bread & Butter Thing uses mobile food clubs to provide access to nutritious and affordable food in struggling neighbourhoods across the UK. As the cost-of-living crisis wears on, most of their members have sought out loans to pay for energy, and they’ve reported a rising number of parents skipping meals. Their services and broad reach are needed more than ever. 
  3. The Bike Project matches refugees and asylum seekers with refurbished bikes. While claims for asylum are being processed, refugees are denied permission to work. Many refugees cannot afford to access essential services or opportunities and are at risk of social isolation. The Bike Project presents opportunity through mobility. 
  4. Tiny Tickers works to improve the detection, care, and treatment of babies with serious heart conditions in the UK. Their team trains sonographers to spot defects, campaigns to improve national standards, raises awareness of their mission, and provides information for parents and families dealing with a diagnosis.
  5. Action For Kids Charitable Trust helps children and young people with disabilities and autism live more independent, fulfilling lives. Across the UK, the charity provides specialist mobility equipment not available through the NHS and helps disabled young people build aspirations and develop life skills. Raising a child with disabilities costs three times as much as raising a child who is not living with a disability. This disparity has been exacerbated by the cost-of-living crisis. 
  6. Darlington Assistance for Refugees is devoted to welcoming people who are refugees and asylum seekers into the local community by offering support and fostering inclusion. Local volunteers work alongside sanctuary seekers as they rebuild their lives in Darlington and the North East of England. The cost-of-living crisis adds yet another hurdle to their already challenging situation. 

Your support of the GlobalGiving UK Cost-of-Living Crisis Relief Fund powers community-led recovery, and it means that people can get critical resources to help their community. Thank you again for your generosity during a difficult time for all. 

With gratitude, 

Kelly + the GlobalGiving Team
