Community Christmas


Community Christmas believes that no older person in the UK should be alone on Christmas Day unless they want to be.  For an estimated 500,000 older people Christmas Day alone is the stark reality. Christmas can be a catalyst for change; we enable people of all ages to make connections within their communities, and encourage them to take these connections beyond the day itself, drastically improving quality of life in the longer term. Community Christmas connected an estimated 15,500 people to over 500 events last year - but we need your help to do more.

Crohn’s and Colitis UK

Alzheimer’s Society

Every three minutes someone in the UK will develop dementia. It’s the leading cause of death in England and Wales, and is set to be the UK’s biggest killer. Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity and we are there for anyone affected by dementia. We do this by providing information, support and care services. We also fund cutting edge research so that one day, no family will have to face this devastating condition. With your support, life doesn’t have to end when dementia begins.

The British Nutrition Foundation’s

The Prince’s Countryside Fund

Established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010, The Prince’s Countryside Fund exists to improve the prospects of family farm businesses and the quality of rural life. Our countryside is under threat with family farming businesses struggling to break even, community services such as pubs and shops closing at an alarming rate and too few young people seeing the potential for a future career in our rural areas. We help by providing grant funding to projects across the UK, running our own projects and commissioning research into issues affecting the countryside. We are also always there in a crisis and have a dedicated Emergency Fund.
