Payroll giving

We all look forward to pay day, so why not share a little of the joy with us through payroll giving?   It’s easy to support Family Lives by making a regular donation through your payroll. Sign up to payroll giving today and improve the futures of vulnerable families across the country.


Give as you earn

Giving as you earn is super easy and also the most tax effective, because donations are deducted before you pay tax.

For example, if you donate £10, only £8 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest. Or if you're on a higher tax rate (40%), only £6 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest.

By giving from your salary each payday, you will be helping to support families in crisis who need support and advice through our services. The fact that we know how much and how often you will donate means that we can plan ahead and make sure your hard-earned cash is put to the best possible use.

How to sign up to payroll giving

Your finance or human resources department will be able to advise you if there is already a scheme in place. If there is, simply fill out a form with your chosen amount, mentioning Family Lives as your chosen charity. Otherwise please print out a payroll giving form, fill it in and simply hand it to your HR department. See the Charities Trust website for more information about payroll giving
