The difference you make

There are some incredible projects, in the UK and Africa, that have found effective ways to tackle poverty and injustice. Your money means we can choose the best and then fund them.

This Red Nose Day, there are five issues we’re specifically focusing on where your support has made, and can continue to make, a huge difference.
