Charity: Reach Community Projects
Charity number: 1169108
Description: At Reach Community Projects we believe everyone deserves to live their lives to the full. However, poverty has a devastating effect on family life and that of an individual and robs us of the freedom to achieve this. Our purpose is to tackle poverty in and around Haverhill, restoring people's dignity and reviving their hope. Our aim is to lift people out of poverty! REACH stands for 'Restore, Encourage, Action in the Community and Hope'. Our vision is to uncover and resolve the root issues of the people we see and lift them out of poverty, restoring dignity and reviving hope. We do this through 6 key activities/projects - REACH resource centre, a drop-in centre open weekdays providing practical support for people struggling with poverty, debt, family problems and benefit issues - REACH Money Advice, Debt counselling, budgeting and money management support - Foodbank, providing emergency food parcels to families and individuals in need - Starter Packs, providing essential bedding & kitchenware - Client Aid, financial assistance through donation based projects such as Acts 435 - REACH into the Community, this project seeks to deliver all of our projects on a more discrete manner within people's homes in more rural communities surrounding Haverhill.

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!
