Thank you for your interest in donating to QSA’s work!
Every action we take against poverty is made possible by donations from people and organisations who care about helping people on the lowest incomes to seek solutions to the issues affecting their lives.
The money you give will help us to provide direct support to around 3,000 people per year, across the UK, as well AS to achieve wider change through our strategic work for example on the issue of funeral poverty.
Ways to donate

By clicking on the suggested % contribution, you can choose from a list of amounts or select Other which enables you to enter an amount or leave it blank.

How we use donations
We prefer donated money to be ‘unrestricted’ which means supporting our work as a whole. Unrestricted funding works magic at our charity because it is hard to fundraise for elsewhere and it gives us the time and freedom to ask ‘where is this most needed today?’ It also allows us to research new work as we ask ‘what is no one else doing that we can do to help?’ For example, funds like this allowed us to launch Down to Earth as the UK’s first (and only UK-wide) practical support service for people struggling with funeral costs.
The costs shown below are only examples of how donations may be used.
