From direct debit, to community collections, to sponsored events: public donations come in many forms. Without them, our life-changing work simply would not be possible. That’s why your trust is so important to us - and why we’re totally transparent and accountable to you in our fundraising efforts.

Out and about

Face to face fundraising is an essential method of raising money. Our Street Fundraising teams play a vital role in taking our message out to the UK public, giving supporters the opportunity to start a regular donation to support Concern’s life-saving work. They offer to sign people up to campaigns like ‘Through to 2’ which is focused on helping babies survive the most important first two years of life.

All face to face fundraisers working for Concern are employed and trained by us. Concern is registered with the Fundraising Regulator and is committed to achieving the highest fundraising standards, including complying with the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice. Concern is also a member of the Institute of Fundraising, which promotes the highest standards in all forms of fundraising, including street fundraising.

Accountable to you

The generosity of our supporters is helping us deliver real change on a bigger scale than ever before. That’s why we’re committed to letting you know how we raise money, how we spend your donations and the impact your donations are having.

If you have any questions, concerns or feedback regarding our fundraisers please contact us. Alternatively you can visit our Concern on the Streets FAQ page. Please note that our face to face fundraisers never ask for cash or credit card details.
