Over £200,000 Awarded To More Than 600 Incredible Projects

We are the charity that helps people Go Nice Places Do Good Things.

1% of Alpkit sales go towards supporting individuals and direct action projects. We’re incredibly proud to see the effect that these small steps can make. Our support takes the form of direct action by giving our financial support, publicity, advice or resource to help projects get off the ground. We love to support projects that champion education, participation, environment, diversity and health.

If you know of a deserving project, or think you’re someone that only needs a bit of backing to make a big difference, it’s simple to apply, or donate.

Grassroots Support Now

We are now prioritising our funds to support projects that demonstrate an immediate impact on those effected by the Covid-19 virus crisis.

    Examples of projects we will consider:
  • Being active in your local community to help elderly or vulnerable people
  • Minimising the impact of self-isolation for those in quarantine and need access to food, medicines or social care
  • Supporting foodbanks and increasing the number of meals on wheels deliveries to support the elderly
  • Supporting those who are homeless or in temporary accommodation
  • Bringing adventure indoors and overcoming the obstacles that prevent us benefiting from going outdoors
