For survivors

Abuse happens in many different ways, but behind every type of abuse is a misuse of power and control. You can start to repair the damage and reclaim your life.

For professionals

Adult survivors of child abuse often don’t receive the support they need, because professionals don’t understand childhood trauma and its impacts in later life.

For supporters

Many survivors fear telling people about the abuse they suffered because they worry that they won’t be believed or that listeners can’t bear to hear about it.

Donate

Around one in five adults experienced some form of abuse in childhood. Childhood trauma can have lasting impacts, but the right support can transform lives.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows NAPAC to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to NAPAC we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like NAPAC to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that NAPAC will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When NAPAC receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
