Our charitable vision

Stories are good for you.

Roald Dahl said, "If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."

We believe in doing good things. That’s why ten percent of all Roald Dahl income* goes to our charity partners. We have supported causes including: specialist children's nurses, grants for families in need, and educational outreach programmes. Thank you for helping us to sustain this vital work.

The Roald Dahl Charitable Trust is a registered UK charity (no. 1119330).
*All author payments and royalty income net of third party commissions.
