Make a difference

“It’s easier to take than to give. It’s nobler to give than to take. The thrill of taking lasts a day. The thrill of giving lasts a lifetime.”

 - Joan Maques

Making a donation, however small, will enable the SVP to make a difference to the lives of people in real need. We rely on the generosity of people like you to help them. Your regular financial support can help us create lasting solutions to tackling poverty and building a better future for people in need.


Here are some of the things your donation might enable us to do:

...would provide a hot meal for a homeless/disadvantaged person at an SVP Community Support Centre  

...would provide a one-hour debt counselling service at an SVP Community Support Centre SVP delivery van that provides free furniture and household goods to those in need could be fuelled for 25 collections and deliveries


...would give two children from a poor background a week’s holiday at one of our camps


Make your donation go further with Gift Aid
The Gift Aid scheme means that your donation could be worth 25% more at no extra cost to you!


If you're a UK taxpayer by signing a Gift Aid Declaration Form your generous donation increases by 25p for every £1 you give without any additional cost to you!  Furthermore, every additional donation you make means the SVP can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift.

Higher rate tax payers can claim additional tax benefits for donations they make to charity, which you can keep or pass on to any charitable organisation. Simply indicate how much you have donated when completing your tax self-assessment form.
