What is Gift Aid and how does it help Age UK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent?

The Gift Aid scheme allows us to claim 25p back from the government for every £1 you donate. That means we get more out of the money or donations you give us, without it costing you more.

Can I Gift Aid charity shop donations?

Yes. We can claim Gift Aid on what we make from the donations in our charity shop too. Gift Aid on a £60 bag of donations raises an extra £15, which could help recruit, train and support befrienders to visit housebound and isolated older people.
