Nepal earthquake

Slough Borough Council has received many phone calls from people asking what they can do to help following the earthquake in Nepal.

If you wish to give a monetary donation the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) is taking monetary donations online.

The DEC brings 13 leading UK aid charities together in times of crisis: Action Aid, Age International, British Red Cross, CAFOD, Care International, Christian Aid, Concern Worldwide, Islamic Relief, Oxfam, Plan UK, Save the Children, Tearfund and World Vision; all collectively raising money to reach those in need quickly.

You can donate online at the DEC website.

We would always suggest donating to registered charities to ensure your money or other donation is going where you intend it to go.

Anyone wishing to hold a collection for Nepal is advised to speak to the council’s licensing team. It is illegal to collect money in the street without a licence.
