Your support helps us empower people with learning disabilities and their families. It helps them live the lives they want.

Your donation will make a real difference - whether it's used to provide training for Susy, one of our volunteer befrienders, to fund singing and acting sessions for Lucy, a young woman with Down's syndrome or to provide the help Joe's mum gets through our family support service.

Just send a cheque made payable to Eddie's with your name and contact details. If you are making a corporate donation, please include your organisation's name, address and an employee contact name. Please send all cheques to:

Lancaster House

Increase your donation without spending a penny extra

Gift AidDid you know that you could help us support people with learning disabilities without spending a penny extra? This is because the government's Gift Aid scheme allows us to reclaim tax on donations since April 2000 and into the future. That means that for every £1 you give to Eddie's, we can now reclaim 28p from the tax man. Even though that may only seem like a small amount, you will be surprised how it all adds up if most people do it.

There's no extra cost to you - all you have to do is fill our Gift Aid Declaration
