Ways to give

Charity Car is the big-hearted scheme from the UK’s largest car recycling network, that allows you to turn your old car into a cash donation for charity. By choosing Charity Car, 100% of the market value of your scrap car will be donated to Arms Around The Child.

 

You can choose whether to deliver your old car to one of its local recycling centres, or to make things really easy, they’ll collect it from you for free!

 

It’ll be recycled responsibly, so you can be reassured there will be no harm to the environment.

 

They’ll also help you to complete the necessary DVLA paperwork and issue your DVLA Certificate of Destruction, so you can prove your car has been recycled legally.

Volunteer

Volunteer Invest is a social enterprise working with groundbreaking charity partners in South Africa, Ghana and India achieving incredible results in the areas of human rights, child development, child therapy and HIV/AIDS treatment.

 

Our Beginnings 

We began life in the winter of 2015, originating out of a wish to solve two problems 1) How best to sustainably support our partners in the long-term and 2) How to maximise the impact of their work beyond the local level.

 

The Volunteer Invest model connects value-driven, socially-conscious change makers with the opportunity to contribute to, learn from and experience frontline social work in action.

 

We believe our volunteer programme has the potential to achieve social impact on an exponential scale as the exchange of skills, knowledge and ideas continues to spread from community to community.

 

Financial Bit 

A small team united by a shared interest in social impact. 80% of our fees go direct to our partners, with only 20% retained to cover our running costs. This is highly unusual for an industry in which 50:50 is the norm!
