Payroll Giving is a means for employees to donate to any UK registered charity directly from their Gross Pay (i.e. before tax is taken). In order to operate the scheme your employer needs to contract us with a recognised Payroll Giving Agency such as Charities Trust. You can download our Payroll Giving form and present it to your HR advisor at your place of work.

A legacy can be as large or as small as you like; you could leave a set amount, a percentage of your estate or simply what is left once your family and friends have been cared for. Our Leaving a gift in your will leaflet outlines the different types of gift you can leave.
