Regular Giving

Pathways 4 All is one of the North East’s leading providers of specialist leisure facilities for disabled children.  With over 800 families visiting the Tim Lamb Centre on a regular basis, our provision has proved to be a popular choice for play days.  For many families, our provision provides a lifeline, as they have experienced difficulties accessing general play centres in the past.  The Tim Lamb Centre is also a firm favourite for some of the local special schools and colleges too.

In addition to the family and school drop-in sessions at the Tim Lamb Centre, Pathways 4 All also provide supervised short break activity sessions.  Our Saturday Club, Friday Night Youth Club, Space for Us programme and holiday playschemes, all provide a range of safe and supervised experiences for the disabled children and young people.  They also provide families with a much-needed break from their caring responsibilities.

Providing support for families is important to us, as we recognise the demands placed on parents, siblings and the wider family of a disabled child, often far exceed the challenges faced by most families.   We run a weekly parent-carer coffee morning (term-time) and organised regular sibling activity sessions too.  We also have two charity caravans on offer, enabling our families to enjoy subsidised family holidays or short break.

How is regular giving beneficial?

As a small local charity, we rely on grants and donations from people like you.  We don’t receive any government or local authority funding to develop and provide our facilities or services.  Your contribution can really make a big difference.

By choosing to be a regular donor, you can make a big difference to our charity.  Your gift will help us plan ahead and make long-term improvements to the facilities and services we offer disabled children and their families.  Your commitment can help us bring joy and laughter into the lives of local disabled children living right here in the North East.

Gift Aid;

If you are a UK tax payer, you can make your donation go further by opting into the Gift Aid scheme.  By opting in we will receive an extra 25p for every £1 you donate.  All you need to do is tick to agree to the declaration when you first sign up, Virgin Money Giving claim the money from the Inland Revenue on our behalf and then it comes directly to us.

Option 2; Payroll Giving.

Payroll giving is an easy, tax-efficient way to make a regular donation to our charity.  The Give As You Earn scheme (GAYE) is a popular choice for workers as the donation is taken from your gross salary, before tax, giving immediate tax relief on your donations.   Anyone whose pay is taxed through PAYE can donate through Payroll Giving.

Basic rate taxpayers:

For every £1 that you earn, 20p is paid in tax. This means if you pledge £10 a month, we will receive the full £10, but only £8 will be deducted from your net pay.

Higher rate taxpayers:

If you’re a higher tax rate earner paying 40%, a £10 a month pledge will mean only £6 will be deducted from your net pay.

If you wish to donate via the Give As You Earn scheme, please check with your employer to ensure they are registered and then they can organise this for you. Please be aware that if you have a change of employment in the future, you will need to start a new payroll giving scheme.
