We are heavily dependent on grants and donations from the local community to fund our services, none of them a guaranteed source of income. A large proportion of our income comes from individuals, churches, schools and colleges, and charitable trusts with an interest in our work.
In addition to donations of money we also welcome donations of food, clothes and many other items, which help us to reduce operating costs significantly.
Please give generously and make a positive difference to somebody's life today.
We welcome all donations however big or small, and there are many ways to transfer funds to us both online and offline. Gift Aid can boost your donation even more. Also check out our Fundraise and Gifts in Wills pages for other ways that you could help to provide funds for us.
Many individuals and groups raise funds for us through participating in sponsored events, or organising events from concerts to art sales and more… The opportunities are endless.
More and more people are leaving a sum of money in their wills as a gift to a charity as a way of donating that can provide long term benefits without impacting on their current financial position.
At the Gatehouse we recognise that organisations may wish to support us in a wide variety of different ways, often as a package containing several elements, and we are always open to discuss all options to work out the most beneficial outcome.
Our clothes store provides guests with much-needed clothing, sleeping bags, toiletries and much more, and we rely on donations to keep it well stocked. Find out more about our current needs.
The Gatehouse has been providing free food and drink as a core service since 1988, and it is still a significant part of our expenditure. Donating food items or becoming a regular food group volunteer helps us keep those costs down.
