If you are in paid employment you might like to consider making a regular donation to Warwickshire Young Carers through payroll giving. Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn or GAYE) is a tax-free way of giving regularly to Warwickshire Young Carers, making it one of the most efficient ways of supporting us.
How Payroll Giving Works
Each time you are paid, a donation is deducted by your Payroll Department before your tax is calculated e.g. if you are a basic rate taxpayer and you pledge £5 per month you pay just £4. The taxman will add the remaining £1 at no cost to you! If you are a higher rate taxpayer then it will cost you even less to donate £5 to Warwickshire Young Carers.
Some employers offer a 'matched giving' scheme where they match or double your gift at no extra cost to you. Ask your employer is they offer a ‘matched giving’ scheme for staff who make regular donations through the Give As You Earn scheme.
Research suggests that 3 in 5 of us will provide unpaid care for another person at some point in our lives. If these statistics are correct, the chances are some of your employees are already providing a ‘caring service’ in conjunction with their paid employment. In which case, it is very likely that they may also need some help and support.
