Mail Force Charity CIO is a registered charity (England and Wales number 1189196, Scotland number SC050218) launched by the Daily Mail and General Trust plc during the first UK lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The charity’s first mission was to source and provide essential equipment, including masks and coveralls, required by the NHS and care workers fighting the pandemic and, with the support of the very generous British public, we helped those heroic workers in their fight to save lives.
We are now responding to the crisis of online learning, trying to overcome the ‘digital divide’ and support children and young people in education whose education is being hampered by barriers to getting online and engaging in remote learning.
We are registered with the Fundraising Regulator, the independent regulator of charity fundraising. By registering, we agree that all of our fundraising will be legal, open, honest and respectful and we will comply with the fundraising promise.
