We rely on your support to continue our work in helping to understand and treat obesity. If you work for or are a representative of a company that could help, please visit the page 'How companies can help Weight Concern.'
How individuals can help:
You can become a 'Friend' of Weight Concern, and help us with our work by donating £15 a year. You can receive discounts on Weight Concern products and we will send you our newsletter with details of developments, progress and other information.
Click here to become a friend of Weight Concern.
If you would rather support us without receiving the newsletter then just click here to make a donation using a credit card.
Donations can also be made by sending a cheque in the post (Click here for contact details) or by setting up a standing order with your bank, so that a monthly or yearly donation is made without you having to do anything else.
Note: if you make a donation and are a tax payer we can reclaim the tax, so that for every £10 you give, the Inland Revenue gives us £2.80.
Events (see Fundraising Ideas)
Do something - however small - to raise funds for the charity. Hold a charity coffee morning and invite your friends. Even if you can only raise £10 and have a good time then we will be happy - however small, your donation will help.
Organise a sponsored walk, or swim, or something equally fun. You do not need to run a marathon, a five mile walk through the woods that takes all afternoon can still raise money if you ask people you know to sponsor you. (Mind, if you do want to run a marathon, that is fine with us!)
If you want to run an event of this or any other type to raise money for Weight Concern, let us know and we will send you leaflets about the charity and a letter confirming that you are offering to raise money for us.

Some people decide that they would like to leave money to a charity when they die.
If this is something you are interested in, your solicitor can give advice on will-making, and there are a number of self-help books on the subject. By giving to a charity you will know that good work can be done in your memory.
If you want to leave a legacy to Weight Concern, your solicitor will need to know our registered charity number, which is 1059686.
