Charity: Help On Your Doorstep
Charity number: 1133145
Description: Help On Your Doorstep works to improve people's health and wellbeing in Islington. Working alongside residents we find solutions to issues which make life difficult, strengthen communities and enhance life chances. By identifying people who may be at risk, we provide early support to prevent the need for later crisis interventions. We work in partnership with other voluntary and public services working in Islington and aim to connect people to the help that is available to them. Our core services include information and referrals, which we provide through our Connect service, and community development, which we provide through our Good Neighbours Schemes.

You can support any of the 200,000 UK-registered charities.
Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
