Why Give?

Give in celebration

Have you lost a loved one to dementia or supported someone fulfilling the role of a family carer?

If you have a special occasion coming up you might like to raise awareness for our cause by asking your family and friends to donate to charity instead of receiving gifts. Your kindness will make sure that family carers of people living with dementia will never be denied access to the support they need.

Give in memory

Celebrate the life of a loved one by giving in their memory while also supporting family carers of loved ones living with dementia.

Dementia affects 850,000 people in the UK and it can be devastating to watch the memories of a loved one slip away. Sadly, as the condition takes hold, those living with dementia can feel isolated and forgotten. Make a memory that will last by donating in the name of a loved one and help us fulfil our vision that no one caring for someone with dementia goes without the support they need again.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can Gift Aid your donation, which means the HMRC will add 25% to your donation at no additional cost to you. For example:

  • Your donation of £10 will mean £12.50 to us
  • Your donation of £100 will mean £125 to us

Higher rate taxpayers can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax 40% (or 45%) and the basic rate of tax 20% of the total gross value of their donation (including Gift Aid). The higher taxpayers on 45% tax can claim back 25% of the gross value of their donation. The higher tax payers on 40% can claim back 20% of the gross value of their donation as shown below:

  • £12,500, you can claim back 20% = £2,500
  • £1,250, you can claim back 20% = £250
