Help support our long-term work
There are many ways in which you could support us:
Donate to us
Your donation will enable us to continue offering our training for free to family and friend dementia carers. Donate Online Now
Please remember that if you pay tax, when you donate to us you can add Gift Aid, meaning 25% will be added to your gift at no extra cost to you.
Make us your Charity of the Year
Whether it’s your company, your club, your child’s school or your local pub, please consider making us your Charity of the Year.
Create a fundraiser
You could consider asking people to donate to us for your birthday, or other special occasion, via a Facebook Fundraiser or undertake a sponsored challenge to raise money for us. You could run your own on or offline quiz, cake sale or other event for us. Let your imagination flow!
If you’re working, the Payroll Giving scheme is an easy, tax-effective way to donate. Many large organisations operate this scheme, just ask your payroll / HR department. Donations are deducted from your pay before tax is calculated.
Come to our Fundraising events
Whether online or face to face, we run yearly events, which have included a Barn Dance and a Quiz – these will be face to face again when restrictions allow. So sign up and support us, involve some friends and have some fun!
Sell items and give us the proceeds
Whether on E-bay or elsewhere, if you’re having a clear-out and would like to sell some items for our benefit, then we would welcome any and all extra funds.
Get schools involved
If you have children or other family members at school, consider approaching their school to make us their Charity of the Year, or undertake other fundraising activities for us.
Help spread the word
Please follow, like and share our posts on Facebook and Twitter and help spread awareness of the training that we offer.
Raise money as you shop
If you sign up to Easyfundraising then you shop and Understanding Dementia gets money. For free. Whenever you shop online with thousands of retailers, they will make a small donation to us – it couldn’t be easier to combine a fun activity with supporting us!
