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.

Option 1 ~ Monthly direct debit through Give As You Live Donate

Setting up a monthly direct debit through Give As You Live is very straightforward.  With a regular donation of as little as £5 per month, you can choose which day of the month you would like the money to come out of your account and cancel at any time.   If you are eligible for Gift Aid (see below) this can be set up at the same time and you can also choose to include the transaction fee.   Set up a direct debit through Give As You Live today.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, 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, Give As You Live can claim the money from the Inland Revenue on our behalf and then it comes directly to us.

Option 2 ~ Monthly direct debit, direct!

Set up a Direct Debit, direct with us!  For as little as £3 a month, you can commit to a regular donation.  Regular direct donations can be set up via your own online/telephone banking and you can choose the day of the month your donation is transferred.

If you would like to make a regular donation direct, please contact

Even if you donate direct, we can still claim Gift Aid on your donation if you are a UK taxpayer.  Your donation is worth an extra 25% to our charity at no extra cost to you. To enable us to claim, you just need to complete and return the Gift Aid Declaration to us when you sign up.  We will do the rest.

Option 3 ~ 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.
