Make a DonationLast changed: Tuesday 5 March, 2019

Donations have helped us to support over 17,000 Yorkshire carers. Please donate today so that we can help carers when they need us.

Your gift can make a real difference to carers.

  • £60 – We support local young carers aged 7 – 18. A break from caring during the school holidays or one-to-one mentoring can make such a difference.

  • £25 – Exhausted, worried and isolated. Carers can be feeling any of these. Your gift means we can provide one-to-one support to carers when they need it most.

  • £15 – Makes Christmas special for a young carer by providing a treat.

  • £12 – Keeps 5 isolated carers in touch with us for one year via our newsletter, Choices.

After you’ve taken care of the people you love in your will, a gift to the Carers’ Resource will help us to continue supporting local carers and vulnerable people. A gift in your will makes a real difference and is a positive way of making sure carers are cared for in the future.

Funeral Collections

Donations at funerals are a special tribute to the memory of a loved one and really make a difference to us.

I wanted the Carers’ Resource to benefit from the collection at my Dad’s funeral
because they were a trusted friend to call upon when things got too much so I could support
my Dad at home until he died. I wanted to give something back”.

 Rosemary cared for her father.

Gifts in Memory

We often have special dates which remind us of loved ones who have died; an anniversary or a birthday. An In Memoriam gift would be a positive way of making sure their memory lives on and would help us to continue supporting local carers.

Give a Car

Giveacar is a social enterprise which accepts donations of unwanted cars to raise money for charities. This is how it works:

If you have a car or vehicle that you want to get rid of you can donate it to the Carers’ Resource.  Just like giving clothes or furniture to a charity shop.

  • Get in touch with giveacar and tell them your details and nominate the Carers’ Resource as the charity to benefit.
  • Giveacar will arrange to collect the car within 7 days at no charge to you.
  • Make it roadworthy and sell it at auction or dispose of it at an authorised treatment facility where it will be recycled and de-polluted in the correct way.

This benefits our charity and also has environmental benefits. You’ll also be informed of how much cash this has raised for Carers’ resource.
