MATRIX Neurological values all donations, no matter how small, which help us provide support to children, young people and their families living with the effects of an acquired brain injury. As, year on year, more children and young people survive a serious brain injury the demand for support will continue to grow.
Your donation can help us achieve the best possible future for those families affected by, and living with, an acquired brain injury.
There are a number of ways you can donate:
Click on our Donate button on the HOME page. This takes you to an external website, www.givey.com, which is a secure social donation platform that collects donations on behalf of our charity where we receive 100% of your donation. If you sign up for Gift Aid we also get a bonus from the tax man. This means that for every £1 you donate we receive £1.25.
REGULAR DONATION BY DIRECT DEBIT
Make a regular donation to us by direct debit. Contact us to arrange this.
GIVING THROUGH YOUR PAY PACKET
See if your employer, company or personal pension provider runs a Payroll Giving Scheme where you can donate straight from your wages or pension. The money you donate is deducted before income tax is deducted. The tax relief you get depends on the rate of tax you pay. For every £1 you actually only pay 80p if you are a lower rate taxpayer and 60p if you pay the higher rate of tax.
If you are a limited company your business can pay less corporation tax when you donate to a charity. The value of your donation(s) are deducted from your total business profits before you pay tax. (Source: www.gov.uk June 2015)
BUSINESS SPONSORSHIP OF A CHARITY
Charity sponsorship payments are different from donations because your company gets something related to the business in return. However, you can deduct sponsorship payments from business profits before you pay tax by treating them as business expenses. (Source: www.gov.uk June 2015)
LEAVE US A LEGACY IN YOUR WILL
Your will is one of the most important documents you’ll write. It’s a chance for you to help and provide for your loved ones.
A gift in your will is also a way for you to help support children, young people and their families that you never knew but that can help make a brighter future for those families living with the effects of an acquired brain injury.
"Different 'experts' involved in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation come from different organisational cultures which causes conflict and has a negative effect on the outcomes for the child."
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
"Parent-supported interventions after paediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"Thousands of children and young people living in the UK today without the help and support that can make a huge difference to their lives"
