Other ways to give

Here are some other ways you can support us

Payroll Giving

Also known as Give As You Earn, allows you to donate to a charity through your salary. The donation is deducted by your Payroll Department before the tax is calculated, making your donation a tax efficient way of supporting our work.

As a basic rate tax payer, if you donate £10 per month, your gift will only cost you £8.00.[1] The Inland Revenue will add £2.00, at no extra cost to you! If you are a higher rate taxpayer then it will cost you even less. Click here for further information on tax relief.

In addition, some employers might offer a ‘match giving' scheme. This means they will match or in some cases double your gift at no extra cost to you.

Check with your payroll department to see if your company offers a Payroll Giving Scheme, then decide how much you would like to give each payday. Remember that the amount you pledge will include the amount the taxman will add.

Once your instruction has been set up, the acting Payroll Agency will forward us your monthly donations. On receipt of the first donation we will send you written confirmation to officially welcome you on board!
