Amnesty International UK Charitable Trust
Amnesty International UK is divided into two legal entities – the UK Section and the Charitable Trust – and each has its own constitution and Board.
The UK Section is our membership arm and it is responsible for much of our work, including campaigning and communications.
For historical legal reasons the Section cannot be a charity. But we do carry out some activities that are considered charitable under UK Laws. So, to ensure we can maximise benefit from your generous donations we formed a Charitable Trust to fund those activities, including our education, research and awareness-raising work.
What the Trust does
- Monitoring human rights abuses
- Educating the public about human rights
- Raising awareness of human rights
- Researching human rights issues
- Seeking justice for victims of abuses
- Advocating for human rights on an international level
