Unlock the power of your donation with Gift Aid

What exactly is Gift Aid? Gift Aid is a government scheme which lets us claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. As a UK taxpayer you have already paid tax on the money you are donating. As a charity, we can reclaim this tax back from HMRC to increase the value of your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you. This means that if you donate £10 and use Gift Aid, it’s actually worth £12.50.

That’s not all. You can apply Gift Aid to past donations over the last four years as well as any donations you choose to make in the future. This unlocked potential could provide vital support to a child or young person when their world has been turned upside down by grief.

All you need to do is complete the Gift Aid declaration form below.
