How to support us as your chosen charity.
Fundraising for Doorstep
All of the funds donated to Doorstep are spent directly on our clients. No salaries or business expenses are covered by donations.
If you are thinking of holding an event or raising funds for us by other means then please let us know! We would like to offer you as much help as we can in promoting your event and sharing your story.
By emailing firstname.lastname@example.org we can also provide you with any posters or graphics that you might want to display.
Our Client Support fund is used to directly support the young people who access our service. This could include:
Physical donations can be dropped off at our centre on Pasture Street, Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm. For information on food donations, please visit our Food Bank page.
If you are donating a sum of money, we can accept cash, cheques or a BACS transfer. For further information please call our centre on 01472 321444 or email email@example.com.
Furniture and Electrical Goods
We will always consider a donation of furniture but we do not have the physical space to store it and we do not own a delivery van. Any items we consider must be in good condition with no damage or visible marks/stains-sending an email with pictures would help. All fabric items must have the Fire Safety tags still attached. We cannot arrange for items to be collected at short notice and would suggest that you consider the other charities in the area that have furniture shops and/or delivery vans.
Clothing & Bedding/Towels
We do not have a clothing bank but during the winter we often receive items such as socks, gloves or hats. Clothing donations must be new and suitable for our client group of 16 to 25 years old.
We supply brand new towels and bedding to each young person that we house and cannot accept any items like this that are used.
Calling in advance would help save an unnecessary journeys if we are unable to accept a donation and we can direct you to a more suitable charity that may need your help.
We accept self-referrals from young people to our food bank as well as agency referrals. Please call in advance and attend during our drop-in times to collect.
We also have a small amount of basic toiletries for those in emergency.
