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.
Donate your Civil Partnership
If your friends and family want to celebrate your civil partnership but you don’t want any presents, why not donate your civil partnership? Ask for donations for Equal Civil Partnerships instead – and we’ll send you an ECP branded mug as a thank-you.
You can set up via your own JustGiving page. Or we would be happy to set it up for you – Just email us at email@example.com with title line JustGiving and we’d be happy to help.
Or you can ask your family and friends to donate via GoFundMe

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.
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.

Rate your Register Office
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.
Law Commission Consultation
Do fill in the Law Commission Consultation on future regulations for marriage – much of which will be applicable to civil partnerships also.
For full details of which sections to look out, check out our guide to the consultation.
