What we do...

We hope to inspire charities to share stories with listeners and viewersSally Flatman, Charity Appeals Advisor

In 2014 the BBC raised over £107 million pounds for charity through its broadcast appeals, both big and small. Lord Reith, the first Director General, instigated this work with charities in 1923. We broadcast the weekly BBC Radio 4 Appeal and monthly BBC One Lifeline Appeal for charities and we welcome applications here.

We hope to inspire charities to share stories with listeners and viewers.
