Make a Donation

The Warwickshire Young Carers Project receives some funding for its day-to-day running costs from Warwickshire County Council, but we do rely on other donors for financial support. Your donation, gift or support is vitally important and could make a real difference to Young Carers living in Warwickshire.

There are many ways you could support us. These include:

  • Corporate sponsorship
  • Make a donation
  • Run your own fundraising events for us
  • Volunteer with Carers Support Service (see our Volunteers web page for details)

Corporate Sponsorship

Research suggests that 3 in 5 of us will provide unpaid care for another person at some point in our lives. If these statistics are correct, the chances are some of your employees are already providing a ‘caring service’ in conjunction with their paid employment. In which case, it is very likely that they also need help and support.

Regular Giving

With regular giving you can donate as much or as little as you choose each month, quarter or year. Simply set up a regular standing order, and Warwickshire Young Carers Project will benefit from your support on a regular basis. Please contact us for the bank account details.

Payroll Giving

If you are in paid employment you might like to consider making a regular donation to Warwickshire Young Carers Project through payroll giving.

Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn or GAYE) is a tax-free way of giving regularly to Warwickshire Young Carers Project, making it one of the most efficient ways of supporting us.

How Payroll Giving works:

Each time you are paid, a donation is deducted by your Payroll Department before your tax is calculated e.g. if you are a basic rate taxpayer and you pledge £5 per month you pay just £4. The taxman will add the remaining £1 at no cost to you!

If you are a higher rate taxpayer then it will cost you even less to donate £5 to Warwickshire Young Carers Project.

Matched Giving

Some employers offer a 'matched giving' scheme where they match or double your gift at no extra cost to you. Ask your employer is they offer a ‘matched giving’ scheme for staff who make regular donations through the Give As You Earn scheme.
