About Weight Concern

Over 60% of adults and nearly a third of children in the UK are overweight or obese. Obesity increases the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and cancer and has an impact on people’s well-being and quality of life. Weight Concern is a registered charity, set up in 1997 to support the psychological and physical needs of overweight people. We have shown how dieticians, exercise specialists and psychologists can collaborate together to help people make lifestyle changes. Our aims include: • Developing and researching new treatments for obesity • Increasing public knowledge about the causes, consequences and treatment of weight problems • Improving access to weight management information and programmes for different patient groups (for example those from different cultural backgrounds or those with learning disabilities) • Providing education and training for health professionals in the care of overweight patients • Engaging with the public on weight-related issues Money raised for the charity will help us to continue to fulfil our aims, and hopefully reach a greater number of people affected by this condition.

How it works

We turn your daily shopping into every day magic!

easyfundraising partners with over 7,500 brands who will donate part of what you spend to a cause of your choice. It won't cost you any extra. The cost is covered by the brand.

Brands pay us a commission because when you start your shop from the easyfundraising website or app, they can see we sent you to them. If you make a purchase, a commission is generated, and we turn that into a donation - magic!

"Such an easy way to raise money for charity, with no effort. Easy to use website and help available if needed. Huge choice of charities, the problem as ever is who to support as each and everyone is worthy!"

"There's quite a few sites similar to easyfundraising. But where this site stands out is it's helpful & quick replies to queries. It is so easy to set up an account & to start saving for a good cause - I've recommended easyfundraising to a lot of my friends, and they're as impressed as I am with the ease of how it works."

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
