The difference your donations make
All donations are very important to us and are spent locally providing help and vital services. We need your donations to continue to run and develop services to meet the special needs of people with dementia and also to provide support to their carers.
For every £30 donated we are able to:
- Provide two hours of Care Attendant time to look after a person with dementia and to give a carer a break from caring.
- Provide thee hours of care for a person with dementia at one of our weekend day centres.
- Run a self-help support group for 10 carers of people with dementia.
How to make a donation
If you would like to make a donation to Dementia Concern, you can go on the justgiving website. You can make a one-off donation or donate every month. You can set up ‘an in-memory page’.
Alternatively you can write a cheque to the organisation and send it with a short covering letter or note to the office.
Relevant tax information – gift aid
If you would like to make your giving tax-effective and if you pay tax at basic rate, you can sign a gift aid declaration form. We will then be able to claim the tax back from the Inland Revenue.
Making a Direct Debit
Why make a Direct Debit
Giving by direct debit is the most effective way of making a donation. Regular income makes planning easier and ensures that the organisation’s administration is maintained and that new services are developed. It also enables services which are difficult to fund to continue into the future. These include such services as our ‘Dementia Café’, Carers’ Information Evenings, Carers’ Voice newsletter and the Working-Age Dementia Group.
You can choose what amount to give and how often. Should your circumstances change at any point, you can either contact our office, or the Charities Aid Foundation which administers the scheme, and stop your direct debit.
How to join our Direct Debit scheme
If you would like to become a committed giver, please contact the office so that we can send you a direct debit form. You can complete the direct debit form and return it to the Charities Aid Foundation.
