Giving Tuesday – Help us Help you!
Giving Tuesday is a Global Day of Giving. A day where everyone, everywhere can do something to support the good causes and communities that mean so much to them. It is a day to celebrate and encourage giving in all its forms (Check out more here !)
This year we wanted to take the opportunity to give back to our community by recognising the current climate we are in. We aim to share some of the support that is available to help with the cost of living. This includes income and disability benefits, bills and allowances, childcare, housing and travel.
We know that the government is offering help for households. See what cost of living support you could be eligible for: https://helpforhouseholds.campaign.gov.uk/
When you’ve been diagnosed with cancer or a terminal illness, or are caring for someone with a terminal illness, you may need extra help with finances.
Right now energy prices are at an all-time highs, and despite the Government capping bills at an average £2,500 for a typical household this winter, it’s still a huge jump. Take a look at the links below to see all the help available right now and where to go for support:
The current cost of living crisis is affecting us all, even charities who struggle at the best of times. If you can, we are asking that if we have helped you, can you please help us?
Last year, 81p in every £1 went directly to serving our community, whether this was on our nurse helpline, our Natter support groups, or sending out free patient information. The remaining 19p was spent directly on activities needed to raise another pound.
This year we’ve made it quick and easy to donate and are just asking for a small donation to help us, help you.
If you can, please text NCUK followed by your donation amount to 70085 to give that amount.
