Gift Aid

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a really simple way of raising extra money - money that will help us help more people in need of our expert care.

Every gift you make to us - whatever its value - could be worth more to us at no extra cost to you, just by gift aiding it.

How does Gift Aid work?

It's simple - complete a Gift Aid declaration form. It gives us permission to claim the tax back that you've already paid on your donation.

This means that a £10 donation will be worth £12.50, and for every £50 gift, we'll actually receive £62.50.

Can I Gift Aid my donation?

For your donation to qualify, you must be a UK taxpayer and pay enough income tax or capital gains tax. This must be at least equal to the amount that we'll claim on any donations you've made in that tax year.

Even if you're not employed, you're still eligible if you're paying tax on any of the following:

  • Personal or occupational pension
  • Stocks and shares
  • Bank and building society savings accounts
  • Rental income
  • Overseas and UK investment dividends

For example, if you were to generously donate £100 to us in one tax year, you must have paid at least £25 tax, which is the amount that we would reclaim in Gift Aid from HMRC.
