Charities we support

Action for Children

Formerly known as the National Children’s Home and then NCH, this charity has, for over 145 years, been working in partnership with the Methodist Church.  Action for Children works directly with over 390,000 children, young people, parents and carers and runs over 600 services for children and families across the UK. It has campaigned successfully to persuade the government to amend the law on child cruelty and neglect (see the Serious Crime Act 2015) and is currently campaigning to encourage the Education Secretary to stop the closure of Children’s Centres – 1,000 have closed since 2010. See policy updates.

All We Can

Until 2014 called the Methodist Relief and Development Fund, All We Can works in many ways throughout the world for long-term change to end the cycle of suffering caused by poverty, inequality and injustice.


Aquabox is a charity that responds to natural disasters by providing plastic tanks with filters so that families can have water that is clean and drinkable. It began as a charity in Wirksworth in 1992.

Christian Aid

This charity is actively supported by Methodist churches especially during Christian Aid Week (May 15th – 2oth this year) when the message was “We’ve been there for refugees since 1945. We won’t turn our backs now”. The Christian Aid web-site states: “Together we can create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty”.


Formerly called Methodist Homes for the Aged, MHA runs care homes and retirement apartments across the UK. MHA Sunday was celebrated in church services on 11th June this year. MHA’s mission is ‘To improve the quality of life for older people, inspired by Christian concern’.


The website for Methodist Women in Britain states “Our aim today is to connect women with an interest in creative spirituality and a passion for global social justice”. It organises awareness raising and fund-raising for issues of social justice as well as days for reflection and worship. All Methodist women are automatically part of MWiB.

The Leprosy Mission

This is an international Christian charity with 141 years of experience which now concentrates its efforts on eleven countries in Africa and Asia. For more details of how the charity helps see their website.
