Here at Communicare, we are a friendly, neighbourhood charity dedicated to eradicating loneliness, supporting the city’s vulnerable and isolated. Our services are staffed by a team of dedicated people and committed, kind-hearted Communiteers, who volunteer and give their time freely.
Every penny we receive helps to continue and grow our valuable work. We do not charge our service users a penny for the services they receive, and therefore are dependent on donations and grants to meet our essential outgoings.
We whole-heartedly appreciate any donations that you can give. Whether your donation is small or large, regular or one off, what you donate will be gratefully received and used to make a difference.
Giving £15.00 per month will enable us to cover the cost of matching and introducing a service user to a new communiteer for befriending.
Giving £30.00 per month will enable us to cover approximately 60 miles of fuel costs for one of our communiteer drivers.
Giving £50.00 per month will enable us to cover the cost of recruiting, induction and matching a new Communiteer.
Any amount you can give monthly will be used for good and to make a positive difference. Thank You!
* We use Virgin Money Giving to receive our donations. Whilst Virgin Money Giving is quick, easy and clear to use, they do charge us a fee which some donors kindly pay themselves.
How to avoid this fee: some of our wonderful supporters have avoided this fee by setting up a monthly standing order with their bank/building society directly to us. This can be completed with your bank online, via the telephone or by popping into your local branch.
For our bank details to set up a standing order, please contact us via: email@example.com or phone 02382 500050.
If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by 25% because the charity can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift, at no extra cost to you.
Gift aiding only requires you to complete one of the below forms for all donations. Simply complete the below form and return it to us.
