When you donate to Eddie’s you can rest assured that your money is going straight to supporting people with learning disabilities.

For £10 we can recruit a volunteer.

£31 will enable us to train a new volunteer, equipping them with all the skills they need to support someone with learning disabilities.

We spend £34 a year to retain a volunteer – this goes towards socials, a Christmas card, and a certificate in Volunteers Week.

71p of every £1 donated to Eddie’s goes directly to delivering our services and changing people’s lives, the remaining 29p helps us find the next £1 and supports our essential running costs.

Our family support service and befriending schemes have been running for many years but are heavily reliant on fundraising. We always have families on our waiting list. The more funding we get in the more we can continue to grow the service and help more families.

There are several ways you can donate to Eddie’s:

By cheque
Send a cheque made payable to The Edmund Trust with your name and contact details.
