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.
If you would prefer to donate a one-off sum of any size, we would also be delighted. Without your continued donations, we simply could not continue to operate, providing support for couples who are planning or have had a civil partnership.
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.
Sign the Petition to allow Digital Registrations
The lockdown and subsequent cancellations of civil partnerships and marriages have caused great delays in couples being able to enjoy legal and financial protection in their relationship. We are asking the Government and General Register Office to consider how digital registrations could be allowed to provide peace of mind at a worrying time. Click here to sign the petition
Witness Registration Scheme
If you would like to help other couples by witnessing their registration, please click here to provide details of location and availability.
If you need one or two witnesses for your registration, please click here to provide details of time and location. We will do our best to help.
Equal Civil Partnerships is now on running on donations. If you benefit from the witness registration service and are able to contribute, we would be very grateful for any donations you feel able to make – Donate here

Rate your Register Office
As we have passed over 6 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.
