Relate Northamptonshire is an autonomous local charity and has to be totally self-financing. We rely on payments and donations from grateful clients and supporters as well as local authority grants and earnings from selling our education and learning services.
We urgently need more money to maintain and expand our services. At present and due to local authority spending cuts, we have no bursary to offer clients who are unable to pay. We know that families need our help and rely on our specialist support. There are 3 ways you can help.
Make a donation
If you have been lucky enough to enjoy a good relationship, why not celebrate its success by making a donation in thanks for each happy year? Your gift will help couples and families in financial difficulty who have come to Relate for help.
If you pay tax Relate can claim the tax on the donation you give by signing one form. This can be done for a one-off donation or for any donations you give us. Please ask for a form.
Leave a bequest in your will
Many former Relate clients say thank you to us by making a bequest to Relate Northamptonshire in their will. Your solicitor will be able to tell you how to do this. Your bequest will help us to train a new volunteer counsellor or it might enable us to offer counselling in an isolated rural area for the first time.
