Local Giving

Make your donation to the Hand Up fund go twice as far….
Thanks to generous benefactors, donations made to our Hand Up fund through the Local Giving website during October 2012 will be doubled by ‘matched funding’ whilst there are funds available in the ‘matched funding’ pot… so if you’ve considered making a donation, now is the time to do it to increase the probability that it will be doubled up.

Many of our Hand Up loans are for relatively small amounts – (£170 for a cooker, £120 to get a car that’s essential for work back on the road, £160 to pay off a door-step lender’s loan) so even a small donation will make a real difference. And as most of these loans are repaid in full, your donation can be used again and again to guarantee loans for people who would probably otherwise have to turn to doorstep lenders.
