About us

What we do and why

Supporting the industry for nearly 200 years

With a history stretching back almost 200 years, we are one of the UK’s oldest benevolent charities.

The Printing Charity was originally established to support printers and their dependents, but as society and print has evolved, so too has the definition of our sector and those we help.

Our mission is to be the leading charity in the printing, paper, packaging, graphics and publishing sectors. Operating nationally, we provide practical, emotional, and financial support for people in crisis as well as championing young talent within our vibrant industry.

Every Monarch since Queen Victoria has been our charity’s Patron, and we are very proud that King Charles III has also taken on this role.
