Over the Rainbow
Over The Rainbow Children’s Charity supports children living with serious or life-threatening illnesses.
We do this by either providing specialised equipment to help with day to day living for the child or by providing some fun days out.
There is no statutory right for young people with a disability to be provided with medical equipment from the government or NHS, children are therefore slipping through the net, and that is where your donation may be able to help.

The Blurt Foundation
Think of us as the knowing nod. You’ve seen it – a slight bob of the head, often accompanied by a smile. A little movement that says, “I understand”, “I’m listening” and “I’m here for you”. That’s us.
We really understand how devastating depression can be. Jobs come to an end, relationships break down and lives can be lost, all through the effect of depression. That’s why the work we do here at Blurt is so important – it not only changes lives, but saves them.
Black Girls Brunch UK
Black Girls Brunch are dedicated to empowering, inspiring and amplifying Black Women in the UK.
So often Black Women are ‘one of’ in a room of professionals. We created this event to remind Black Women that they are not alone, that there are like-minded women who deal with challenges and the same issues that they too face.
By creating an event for Black Women to network and connect with others in different fields thus creating professional and personal relationships; we hope to aid in the empowerment and growth of Black Women as a collective.
Black LGBT+ Therapy Fund
At present, we are in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, Black people are fighting for the right to live and Black LGBTQIA+ people are having to explain that we exist and that the two co exist as part of our identities.
Amongst a number of other things, Black LGBTQIA+ people been isolated from their families, made homeless and have not been able to exist in their true identities in front of family. This is taking a huge toll on the mental health of a number of us.
We really hope this is a cause you can get behind and donate to.

Tiny Owl Publishing
Diverse-led Tiny Owl faces extreme financial pressure at the moment. As result of the pandemic our costs are growing, and many of our projects for this year have been put on hold.
Tiny Owl was established in 2015 with the aim of publishing high quality, diverse and inclusive picture books for everyone.
Our beautifully illustrated books draw inspiration from cultures all over the world, including Persian legends and the stories of Rumi. We’re a small indie publisher but we think globally, often matching authors and illustrators from different countries to form unique collaborations.
Art in Empty Spaces
We provide free project spaces and studios for artists by matching creatives with vacant shops to regenerate our high streets.
Hypha Studios will be open to the public, creating a new form of engagement in the centre of our communities - whether it be live music/ exhibitions/ceramic classes/life drawings, the public will be able to attend the events and new spaces that are created.
The studios will allow artists to sell work/ state entry fees or ticket prices at their discretion so that they can support and develop their own careers. During Covid the studios will have recorded open days and performances. These will be launched on IGTV.
