Could you be a Friend of Carecent?
York Circuit Webteam: 1st February 2016
For over thirty years, Carecent has been completely reliant on donations of money, food, clothing and toiletries. Our running costs have increased significantly over the last couple of years, and we now need to secure regular income alongside continuing donations in order to carry on helping the vulnerable people who rely on us.
Furthermore, we are considering a number of exciting opportunities and challenges in the coming years, most notably how we can expand and improve the service which we offer. We are exploring offering a day centre facility to augment our existing work. This will involve redevelopment of our current premises, and while we will always be grateful for donations of food, clothing and toiletries, we need to be able to manage our finances in a more structured way in order to be able to apply for grants and in order to be able to budget for the future.
We are therefore launching a "Friends of Carecent" planned giving scheme, and we hope that our supporters within the Circuit will consider making a monthly donation to Carecent — a small donation from you will mean a lot to us! Please download our leaflet for further details.
