Donate to support us

With no further grants, we need more funding to continue our work supporting couples planning a mixed-sex civil partnership and building a lasting legacy for the new legal relationship.

We have used two funding platforms to give our supporters flexibility of choice

To enable us to continue to make plans, we need the confidence of knowing that our funding stream won’t dry up. If you are able to commit to a regular monthly sum – of either £5, £10 or £20 we would be delighted if you could sign up to our direct debit scheme. As an added incentive, we will send you a free gift!

If you would prefer to donate a one-off sum of any size, we would also be delighted.

A Civil Partnership Brooch

If you want something special to mark the occasion, Equal Civil Partnerships has worked with Dunn Jewellery to create a special design for civil partnerships, ideal as a  unisex brooch, though it can be adapted to different forms.

Civil Partner Bar Brooch

The beautiful copper and sterling silver brooch is available  purchase here.

The ECP Campaign has no financial involvement and makes no profit from the sale of the brooches.

Let us know how your register office did

As we have passed over 9 months of mixed-sex civil partnerships – although for much of that, no registrations were able to take place! –  we’d like to know how register offices are doing – in terms of offering choice of registrations and time-slots and in terms of their own understanding and welcoming of the new legal relationship.

Take a couple of seconds to fill in our online form Rate Your Register Office and let us know what you think. Be assured we won’t use personal names or details in any press communications.
