Donate to support our work
We can only provide services to help people living with Parkinson's due to the generous donations we receive.
If you want to support our work or have used our services and feel that you benefited from them, please consider donating to us to help us continue our services.
Whilst some of our services are provided by volunteers, we have a small number of key personnel who deservedly need to be paid. We also have administration and general expenses like any organisation. We keep our overheads incredibly low and as a charitable body any surplus we have is retained within the organisation to improve future service provision.
We are primarily funded through donations of the following 3 types:
Donations from continuous benefits funding which we have managed
We have managed a huge number of benefit applications for people living with Parkinson’s and to date we have secured total annual funding of over £600,000. The average benefit funding we achieve for people is approximately £5,300 per year.
This is the one area of our work which has a direct financial benefit to the people we help. However, the majority of our time is spent providing support in many other areas and does not generate income.
In order to help us to continue to provide the wide range of personal support services, we ask that when we successfully secure continuous benefit funding, the client makes a donation of just one month’s worth of that funding. This can be in the form of a one-off donation or an equivalent sum donated monthly over the first year.
It is important to recognise that such donations are not only funding the assistance with a benefit application but they are funding our ability to continue to provide a wide range of personal support for all clients, as long as it is needed.
One-off or regular donations
Donations can be made at any time, either as a one-off sum or a regular monthly donation. All of this funding has a huge impact on our ability to provide support to as many people as possible.
Legacy donations in wills
One of the most positive ways that people can help is to leave a legacy to Face2Face Parkinson’s in their will. This funding ensures that other people living with Parkinson’s do not have to struggle alone. You can arrange to do this by creating a new will or adding a codicil to your existing will. You should discuss this your other beneficiaries if you feel that is appropriate and you would then need to arrange it with whoever has drawn up your existing will. If you do not have a will then you would need to arrange this with a solicitor or will writing service.
