1/7/20 – Covid-19 and our fundraising

In line with advice and recommendations from both the Institute of Fundraising and the Fundraising Regulator which have been prepared in consultation with Public Health England and the Health & Safety Executive, from 6 July, our fundraising teams will return to work.  There will be extra precautions in place to ensure they are working within the current Government guidelines at all times in relation to approach, social distancing and good sanitation practices. Please see our full Returning to Fundraising information here.


Childlife receives regular donations from supporters either by direct debit or standing order. The majority of donations tend to be monthly although they can be set up for quarterly or annual payments.

Most of the supporters who donate to Childlife through regular donations have been recruited by ‘face to face’ fundraising. This is carried out either in public spaces such as town centres or out-of-town stores or via door-to-door visits. This type of fundraising is extremely valuable to Childlife as it allows us to talk about the work of our four charities to people who have not previously been in contact with us.

Even a small, but regular donation over a number of years can make a huge difference to the charities supported by Childlife.  If you are a UK taxpayer, agreeing to Gift Aid your donation can also add a further 25% to your donation without any additional cost to you.

Current fundraising

We are currently fundraising in residential locations for Direct Debit regular gifts, please see below for details of when and where our most recent recruitment areas are (these can be subject to change at short notice).  If you have any queries with these or would like to check locations/date from longer ago, please contact us.

From 6/7/20 – Watford and surrounding areas

We hope you will enjoy chatting with our fundraisers, but if you don’t have the time or prefer not to, that’s fine.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please do get directly in touch with us.

As a charity registered with the Fundraising Regulator, we are committed to The Fundraising Promise, which you can read here.
