More about The Disasters Emergency Committee

The Disasters Emergency Committee (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.

DEC appeals are reserved for major disasters and emergencies that cannot be dealt with by the usual coping mechanisms within affected countries. Once a decision has been made the DEC alerts the Rapid Response Network, a unique alliance of the UK’s corporate and broadcasting sectors, to reach the British people through all channels of the media.

The DEC draws on many years of experience to plan and deliver each appeal, striving to ensure that the relevant support reaches the people who need it as quickly as possible. So you can be sure that your old car donation will be used for those most in need and the DEC will spend it in an effective and fully accountable way.

64 DEC appeals have raised more than £1.1 billion since the organisation's launch in 1963, helping to save millions of lives and rebuild communities devastated by disasters such as the Pakistan floods, the Haiti earthquake, the 2004 Tsunami, the crisis in Syria and more recently the Typhoon in Philippines and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Your old car could help someone in one of these desperate situations.
