Charity websites 'among the most useful'

Five charity websites feature on a new list of the country's 101 most useful sites such as Google, eBay and Facebook.

Political monitoring site Theyworkforyou, which is run by the charity UK Citizens Online Democracy, came in at number 41 on The Daily Telegraph’s online guide. It also recommended volunteering guide TimeBank (42), Citizens Advice’s website, The Advice Guide (53), the Royal Horticultural Society’s site (55), and Age Concern’s advice site for the elderly (59).

Internet search engine Google came in first place. The charities on the list came above Rated People (66), a website that gives user reviews on tradesman and Money Saving Expert (68) and neighbourhood information site Up My Street (71).

“It’s good to see that charities are using innovative ways of getting their message across,” said a TimeBank spokeswoman. “It’s pleasing to see us rubbing shoulders with the most illustrious names on the web.

“We’re always looking at new and exciting ways for people to get involved in volunteering and help out.”

The full lit is available on the Daily Telegraph's website.
