UK Disaster Relief - A new charity (Registered Charity Number 1136164)

UK Disaster Relief is a very newly established charity. It has been set up to provide practical help to those who have been affected by natural or man-made disasters. UK Disaster Relief was set up by the director of Charities Advisory Trust - Dame Hilary Blume, and Dame Elisabeth Hoodless (former director of Community Service Volunteers). At this time, the Charities Advisory Trust provides the administrative support.   
 
The purpose of UK Disaster Relief is to provide a central charity to which the public can respond to disasters with confidence. The funds are collected nationally but will be distributed locally through charities and community groups in conjunction with social services and victim support. The amounts available for distribution will depend on the generosity of the public.


We are in the process of setting up easy mechanisms for giving. Please bear with us. Soon you should be able to donate through My Donate and Just Giving. We are already accepting donations through MissionFish, charity giving on ebay - where buyers on ebay donate at the checkout. Just choose UK Disaster Relief as your charity.


You can also send a cheque to:
UK Disaster Relief (Riots), Radius Works, Back Lane, London. NW3 1HL.


We thank you in advance of all your support.
