As a small charity, donations are very important to us. Every penny counts!

As a small local charity, we receive no Government funding and every donation, no matter how small, makes a big difference to our work and the families we support. Deaf children are at twice the risk of having emotional and behavioural difficulties, since the pandemic this number has increased to one in three deaf children. The Family Centre are trying to support as many children and their families as possible, with a big increase for emotional and wellbeing support we are in desperate need of more financial help!


Would enable a Deaf child to participate in an event/activity with siblings and peers.


Would allow a Deaf child to take part in a ‘Bear Ear Clinic’ experience.


Would pay for a family day out at a wildlife adventure park with other Deaf families.


Would allow for a Deaf child to have 12 weekly sessions with a play therapist.

Personal Info

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows The Family Centre (Deaf Children) to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like The Family Centre (Deaf Children) to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that The Family Centre (Deaf Children) will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When The Family Centre (Deaf Children) receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
