With immediate effect Humber Aid is ceasing activity
It is with regret we wish to inform you that with immediate effect, the Humber Aid Charity will be ceasing activity.
The decision was not taken lightly but was made due to the fact that the charity has not been delivering as anticipated and has been operating in a crowded local environment alongside other charities with very similar objectives. The administration side of the charity has also been challenging due to a high staff turnover.
If you have an outstanding application, then please accept our apologies that this will not be reviewed due to the cessation of the charity’s activity.

What We Do
Shaping communities for a better future
Founded in 2019, Humber Aid has been working hard within the Humber Region to provide relief to those in need, by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage through assistance as deemed appropriate, including but not limited to respite projects.
We also aim to preserve and protect good health for the public benefit through the provision of community safety equipment such as defibrillators and by such means as the trustees deem fit.
