The Association of Jersey Charities is the representative body of the majority of charitable organisations operating in Jersey.

Presently the Association has 313 member charities and these range from branches of national charities to small local charities, clubs, societies and support groups.

A Charities Law has been passed, November 2014, giving a definition of charity and the provision to set up a charities commission. Until a commissioner is appointed to do this, there is no central register or regulation of local charities. As yet we do not have a timetable for this.

The Association of Jersey Charities exists to provide guidance to and be a source of funding for its members. Jersey charities are welcome to apply to be members, but to establish as a local charity is not dependent upon Association membership.

The Association receives the Jersey share of the Channel Islands' Lottery profits from the Economic Development Ministry to distribute to our members according to need. This funding is therefore dependant on the success of the Lottery.

We would urge our members to support the Channel Islands' Lottery so that the the Economic Development Ministry and the Association can continue to support your vital work.

You will also be able to find out more about volunteering opportunities, how to donate to your favourite charity, visit our events diary page which lists charity events on the island and much much more!
