Whether it’s fun festive activities, big fundraising pushes, or providing vital services throughout the holidays, we know there are staff and volunteers who selflessly give up their time to make sure everyone feels the Christmas spirit. 

Read about our Christmas Heroes and the whole spectrum of activity happening across our sector below or find ways you can take action this Christmas. 

Christmas time can be challenging for some, but with the help of the choir leaders, the meal deliverers, and the helpline volunteers, the world becomes just a bit lighter.

Throughout the Christmas season, charities, community groups, and social enterprises will dedicate their time to ensure this time of year is joyful and magical for everyone, even the most vulnerable in our communities.
