One World Week is a development education charity (Registered Charity Number: 1107762). It exists to provide ideas, coordination and support for people organising One World Week activities in their locality. We depend entirely on donations from other organisations and, increasingly, from individual local supporters.
We need donations to continue to maintain the website, to commission new resources, to pay for what is currently a small office with a few hours of staff time to manage finances and answer queries; and to pay the expenses of committed volunteers who manage the activity and seek new partnerships and funding for projects in the absence of a full-time officer.
One-off appeals in previous years have demonstrated the value afforded to One World Week by a host of supporters across the country and beyond.
Our aim is to obtain more stable income through regular donations to provide security and continuity to enable more pro-active work and long-term planning to be undertaken.

Since 2000, registered charities can reclaim the income tax paid on all donations. This applies to one off donations as well as regular donations and means that for every £10 you donate, the tax office will also donate £2.50 to One World Week.
Call For Climate Action
For the love of each other, this spring, we are standing with over 100 organisations to call for climate action for the sake of all the things that matter most.
For the love of the food on our plates. For the love of our global neighbours. For the Love of Somerset, the Arctic and the Great Barrier Reef. For the love of country walks and Britain's beautiful seasons.
For the love of all the things we care about, we're taking climate change seriously. And we're not alone.
It’s time to stand up, for the love of each other, and demand action.
Will you share what you love? (www.fortheloveof.org.uk)
