i am making a new will at present, and am interested in which smaller, struggling charities folks here support and why.... thanks
Charities are run by rich directors who pocket most of the money to buy there rich life style,far better to leave it to hospice which will go pay for the nurses who attend folk at end of life in there homes if its there wish.
Dont buy hospital equipment as it lies in store rooms never used and then dumped,hope you do wise,cheers trev.
i have almost no family, a few distant cousins. I have been looking on the charities commission website for a while and it is astonishing how much money some of the lesser known charities receive, let alone the big ones. For example the childrens hospice southwest has over £1,000,000 in the bank, and receives £14,000,000 annually. Oxfam has an income of more than £427,000,000 yet spends £432,000,000.
i am looking for small charities run by local people for smaller causes which would not get public funding and yet who provide an essential service. Does anyone know any like this ?

We support Animal Charities ... but not the big ones.
I recently saw a TV programme where a small rescue centre had been scammed out of thousands of pounds. So I sent a one off donation and hope that many other viewers did the same.
My wife started and has run with considerable success a mental health charity, for the past 12 years
Dorchester Trust - Colliton Street Psychotherapy
They have always struggled for funding, as to get big funding you need the big funding team of well paid experts to get the Lottery fund millions in , and Mental health help is an area that has minimal NHS help but is a major issue in our society. Volunteer psychotherapists give free time to the charity.
Sadly, as she is now getting older, she has to close it, no-one else is prepared to give the time and effort, and is now is on a two year wind down. How soon were your thinking of dying ?
