Citizens Advice West Berkshire is a local independent charity, we are not part of government. Each year we have to raise almost £300,000 to keep our operations going and help people within West Berkshire. National government do not fund us, we do get funds from local councils, but they are being squeezed and having to choose between funding us or providing direct services to local people, so we have to raise more funds from other sources. We’ve cut our costs where we can, including reducing the size of our offices and we’re trying not to let our services to local people be affected too much. But we desperately need to keep raising funds.
If you can help, please donate to us; here are all the ways you can do that:
When you donate to one of our campaigns at The Good Exchange your donation will be matched by the Greenham Common Trust, effectively doubling your donation. Plus you can claim gift-aid if you are a taxpayer, adding another 25% to your donation.
Please make us your Amazon Smile Charity - Amazon donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible purchases at no cost to us or you.
To support us you will need to start your shopping each time at smile.amazon.co.uk; remember to bookmark this page for future reference.
