“Your continued support through the endless struggle to find a cure for my illness and get back on my feet means everything to me – without it I could not survive.”

“Following a year of ill health and 10 months of being confined to four walls for most of the time resulted in him getting very down and depressed. I would like you to know just how much this holiday has changed him. He not only smiles now, but breaks into laughter from time to time. It is a lovely thing to see.”

The Journalists’ Charity started in 1864 when a group of parliamentary journalists including Charles Dickens set up a fund to help their colleagues and dependants who had fallen on hard times. Since then, we have assisted those most in need with financial help as well as residential and nursing care.
