How do you work out where to give your money and time? I can't find any comparisons and analyses of charities online that I trust. I'd have liked to post a link saying, here, want to help? Decide for yourself where your money and time will be most useful.
As it is, I can only say that my charity of choice is Caritas. I like that they minimise overhead costs. And, shamefully, I don't currently volunteer for anything. In the past, my favourite volunteer job was walking dogs for the RSPCA.
