East Durham Trust is a registered Charity operating in one of the UK's most deprived communities, the general area of operation covers a population of just under 100,000 which is primarily made up of former mining communities, the last pit having closed in 1993. The Trust was established in 2007 and is constitutionally committed to supporting people who are socially and economically disadvantaged. Currently, this is achieved through a number of projects and services including; • An Emergency Food Parcel Service; distributing up to 70 parcels a week to individuals and families in crisis. • A Telephone Befriending Service; where volunteers make calls to the isolated and vulnerable people every day. • A major poverty intervention project which involves a range of services including debt advice and providing practical support to people in their first weeks of work. • An Energy Advice Service; specifically aimed at helping people out of Fuel Poverty. • The Management of a range of Community based Job Clubs; where people Job-search, Update CVs and apply for Jobs. • Hosting of the local Domestic Abuse Network; supporting victims of abuse in partnership with the local Refuge, other support organisations and Public Sector partners. • The Community Coaches project; where trained Volunteers support local people who are adversely affected by Benefit sanctions, Welfare Reform, Redundancy, Homelessness etc. • An Arts Engagement programme; that seeks to use Arts participation as a route to social inclusion. • A major Mental Health project with recreational and creative education classes for people suffering from depression, anxiety and stress. As well as these kind of projects the Trust continues to offer traditional 'CVS Infrastructure' support to the community which includes Funding and legal advice and the hosting of the local Volunteer Centre.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
