Gift Aid is a scheme controlled and regulated by HMRC (Inland Revenue). This enables charities to claim back, from the donor's tax contributions, 25p for every £1 donated, at no additional cost to the donor.
We can use this extra income to make donations worth more to everyone that uses our services. Whether it’s an extra cup of tea, an extra hour of care, or an extra bed or chair, it all adds up.
The donor is required to be a UK taxpayer and must have paid a sufficient amount of tax to cover any Gift Aid claimed on their donations in each tax year (6th April to 5th April).
There are two ways in which we can claim Gift Aid:
1. Gift Aid
- on your gifts or donations of money:
Sign up for Gift Aid
2. Retail Gift Aid
- on items that you donate to one of our shops:

And what's more...
If you are a higher rate tax payer, you may be able to claim further relief.
