Make a donation
We need to raise £500,000 each year to be able to meet the demand for our services. Every penny you donate stays in Essex and helps those in your local community.
Cycle through the Essex countryside, trek the Sahara or walk the Southend seafront at twilight - there are lots of fun ways to raise money for us!
