For Individuals and Families

How can I make a difference to my local community? Which charities are doing good work on the ground in the region, and how do we select the best ones to support? Will my donation be used effectively?

You want to help, but it can be hard to know where to start with your giving.

Whether it’s in memory of your loved one, to give back to your community where you have found success, or to support a cause that you are passionate about, Quartet makes giving easy for you.

Making it easy to make a difference

We’ll help you identify the causes that are most important to you and explore the range of options available.

By understanding your interests we will help you to get the most from your charitable giving. We’ll share our knowledge of local needs to help you develop your awareness of the issues you care about most and guide you as you develop how you want to give.

Through a series of project visits, discussions and background research we will support you to make informed decisions about your giving, secure in the knowledge that you are meeting pressing local needs.

“We’ve been along to meet lots of projects and different organisations and we’ve really been able to focus and target where our funding goes.”
