Global’s Make Some Noise is the official charity of Global, the media and entertainment group.
We support brilliant, small charities across the UK, which help youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. These charities struggle to get heard, so we unite some the biggest radio stations in the UK and their listeners, to give them a voice and raise money to support their amazing work.
Since our launch in 2014, we’ve raised more than £9 million, and supported 135 incredible charities and projects around the UK, helping them to provide life-changing support and vital services, that otherwise simply might not be available.
By joining us to make some noise, you can help small charities have a big impact.
Who we help
Global’s Make Some Noise has a unique three-part promise to the charities we support – raising money, raising awareness and raising the bar.
Every year, we award grants to specially selected projects across the UK, which do life-changing work in their local communities to support youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
In 2017, we gave out £2.2million in grants to small charities, which will help provide over 92,000 hours of support to almost 15,000 children and young people over the next two years.
Money from Global’s Make Some Noise will fund a whole range of vital activities and services at the projects – including 7,716 hours of vital mentoring for disadvantaged youngsters, 2,574 music therapy sessions for children who might otherwise struggle to communicate, 7,784 hours of much-needed support for young carers, and so much more.
But that’s not all. We know that these amazing causes can often get overlooked, so we shine the spotlight on them by giving them a voice and raising awareness through Global’s much-loved brands.
We also lend our expertise through a series of masterclasses in areas such as digital, sales and marketing. So, in the future, the projects can make more noise themselves.
