We are very grateful to the individuals, trusts and organisations that have funded our essential service for the last 25 years. In 2022 we had a cashflow scare because of a gap in funding.
We have received pledges of partial funding until 2025 and your donation is vital to our resilience.
Every donation has a very high impact
For every £1 spent on running the advice centre, we help local people receive over £10 in welfare benefits they are entitled to. (And welfare benefits are not the only area of our work).
Please give generously today:
- £300 will cover the running costs for one day (we open 4 days per week)
- £5,000 will cover the running costs for one month
BOOST your donation with Gift-Aid (if you’re a UK tax payer) – gift-aid form
Coming soon in 2022: eBay sell for charity and PayPal monthly giving.
How we use money
Running an advice centre is a very effective way of helping people: we typically have 4,500 visits per year. As we have been open for 25 years, people know where to find us (the main way people find out about us is a recommendation from friends/family).
