The history of charities can be traced back to the charitable donations made to almshouses via philanthropic donations from the wealthy and the church groups. Almshouses were created to help provide relief to the poor and sick. Until the 18th century, charities were responsible for running schools, hospitals and providing housing to the poor. The first recorded almshouse dates back to the 10th Century.During the mid 1700's charities began to take on campaigning and lobbying roles in order to change government legislation - a great example of this eventual abolition of slavery throughout the British Empire. The redistribution of wealth and influencing policy still remain the primary focus of many charities, along with funding scientific research and humanitarian causes.
