Local Charities Day builds on the work of our recently published Civil Society Strategy, where the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) committed to enhancing relationships between businesses, charities and local areas, to help communities grow.

This year, the DCMS are highlighting the importance of giving by encouraging people to pledge their time to a local charity, alongside championing the phenomenal and life-changing work of local charities, while shining a huge spotlight on local charity champions – the unsung heroes who always go the extra mile for their charity, the people and causes they support.

Join the conversation on social media

With four weeks to go and as we countdown to Friday 14 December, we will also be highlighting the work of a variety of local charities via this blog.

Today, Friday 14 December is #LocalCharitiesDay, be sure to follow the DCMS on TwitterFacebook and Instagram for more information and updates about the day.

Celebrate the work of charitable organisations and share why you’re supporting the day alongside the #LocalCharitiesDay hashtag.
