As a local charity, we rely heavily on the generosity of individuals, trusts and companies for financial support.
We need around £150,000 in fundraising income each year to maintain our current support to disabled people and we must raise even more to fund our planned future developments.
As an individual, you can give in several ways.
Make a regular gift
Full details on how to make a regular donation to Compaid can be found here.

Leave a Legacy
A number of our supporters are kind enough to include a legacy to us in their wills. If you are interested in supporting us in this way, go to the Leaving a Legacy page for further details.
Compaid is part of your community and if you are an individual, belong to a club or an association we welcome your support. If you haven’t organised anything before we can help you with any activity you may be planning on our behalf. You can organise various events including coffee mornings, cake sales or quiz nights or you can take part in sponsored events and raise money on our behalf.
Working with companies is very much based on a partnership and our aim is to ensure we build mutually beneficial relationships. A partnership with Compaid enhances and projects a positive image of your company within the community. It is also great for staff morale as fundraising is engaging, motivating, fun and encourages teamwork. The company receives the benefits of an association with a respected local charity and the potential to attract new customers.
There are various ways your company can become involved including adopting Compaid as your Charity of the Year. This is an opportunity to build a longer term partnership which enables staff and customers to gain a better understanding of what Compaid does and see the difference they are making to the lives of disabled people. This also gives Compaid the financial security to plan in the future and enables us to provide a better service to our clients and their families.
Compaid is registered with the Fundraising Regulator, and abides by the Fundraising Codes of Conduct.
