Other Ways To Donate

Making a regular donation through your pay to Parkinson’s Care and Support UK is easier than you think.

A regular donation in your pay to PCSUK costs less than you think.

Donations are taken from your pay before tax. If you pledge to give £10 a month, it will only cost you £8 if you are a standard rate tax payer.

Regular donations give PCSUK reliable source of income. This allows us to meet the demands upon our services across the UK.

How to donate in your pay

  • If you earn a salary or pension and your employer deducts Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax, you can donate in your pay.
  • If your employer already supports payroll giving, speak to them about setting up your monthly gift.
  • If your employer doesn’t support payroll giving, they can easily set up the scheme by contacting Charities Aid Foundation. Or they can select from any of the HMRC-approved Payroll Giving Agencies.
  • It takes one to two months before the first gift is taken from your wages. Don’t worry if your donation doesn’t appear in your next pay packet.
  • To stop donating or change the amount you give, contact your payroll department.
  • Changing job and want to continue donating in your pay? You’ll need to set up a new gift by following the same process with your new employer.
