There are many ways in which you can donate to Oakleaf: a one-off donation by BACS, cheque, debit/credit card, a monthly standing order, through JustGiving or PayPal-Giving.

What could your donation fund?

£20 could fund two weeks of supplies for our art classes. The therapeutic benefits of art are extensive and our art courses have a hugely positive impact on our clients.

£60 could fund two weeks of fitness classes, led weekly by an experienced, certified trainer. These classes help clients to rebuild their lives with a stronger sense of wellbeing.

£250 could fund a block of six counselling sessions with an experienced BACP-registered counsellor, available for clients facing challenging or complex mental health problems.

Don’t forget, if you are a UK tax payer the government will add Gift Aid (25%) to the value of your donation at absolutely no cost to you! Download Gift Aid form here.

We always offer a warm welcome for Trustees wishing to visit Oakleaf and to see our work first-hand. We are happy to recognise support or to keep it confidential, to offer regular updates and impact reports, and to enable Trustees to meet with members of Oakleaf’s Board to find out more about our current work and future aspirations.

If you are connected to a trust and would like to know more about our work or to visit us, we would love to speak with you.

 Please consider provision for your family and friends first – but if you can also leave a donation to Oakleaf, your gift will support our clients for generations to come.

Please contact your solicitor or a professional will writer to make or update your will. These can be found through the Law Society’s website or the Institute of Professional Will Writers. You only need to say that you are leaving a gift to Oakleaf and include our registered charity number 1064524.

Gifts in a will (legacies) are generally free from Inheritance Tax and could reduce the liability for your loved ones. There are different kinds of legacies: a residuary gift (a percentage of your remaining estate), a pecuniary gift (specific amount of money) or a specific gift (jewellery or antiques).
