Welcome to the Do Something Directory

Welcome to the Do Something Directory. We help you find organisations that support causes you care about, from charities and non-profit organisations to community groups. Filter organisations by the time or money you have available, or by the area you’re in.

We also offer resources and materials to help with fundraising, campaigning and learning about issues or causes.

Note: we do not facilitate volunteering opportunities; we just help you find organisations that you might like to get involved with. Entries are independently curated by our team and not paid for or sponsored by organisations.
