How to help

Donate to us today

Scotland, England and Wales have the highest imprisonment rates in Western Europe. 40,000 people were sent to prison in 2020. Our recidivism rates are also growing. 64% of people who serve a sentence of less than 12 months reoffend. As we lock more people up, prison safety gets worse, and prison resources get scarcer.

Often, victims of crime describe feeling unsatisfied with the criminal justice process- feeling unheard, not included, and as if their needs are not considered. 

Our services give both victims and perpetrators the space to be heard, and the hope to move forward positively. We have a genuine belief, that with the right support, people can change.

Leave a legacy and make a gift in your will

Gifts in wills (no matter what size) are a wonderful way to support a cause you care about and make a lasting difference. By leaving a gift to Belong, you can help create a fairer, better future for people impacted by crime. We can guarantee that your gift will be used to help us work towards our mission of providing hope, rehabilitation and recovery for victims and perpetrators of crime.

If you would like help with writing your will and leaving a legacy, please get in touch with us and we can help signpost you to our will-writing partners. We understand that your family comes first, and commit to processing support quickly and efficiently, with respect, patience and care. Where you wish us to, we will update your family and loved ones about the difference that your gift has made.

Payroll Giving

Help give us a regular payday. Payroll Giving allows you to donate directly from you pay to Belong. Regular donations give the chance to develop and plan for the future, and it is really easy to set up and maintain

Tax free donations allow you to give more for less. Your donation is calculated after your National Insurance contribution, but before Income Tax is deducted; this means part of your donation comes from money that would otherwise have been taken by HMRC. For example, if you are a basic rate taxpayer and give £20 a month to Belong through Payroll Giving, the tax relief means that this will only cost you £16.

To get started, ask your employer if they are signed up to a Payroll Giving Scheme. If they are, they will give you a form to get started. If they aren’t, then they can find out a list of payroll giving agencies on the* website. We recommend the Charity Aid Foundation’s ‘Give as your Earn’ scheme.*


Non-financial support

Do you have a skill that can help reduce crime and the harm that it causes?

Donating money isn’t the only way you can give to Belong. We are always in need of volunteers in a variety of different roles. We have volunteer openings in our prison & community projects, as well as remote volunteering opportunities – you can make a huge difference from home, at a time that suits you

Graphic designers, social media experts, bid-writers, fundraisers, e-mail marketers, website designers… we would love to speak to you. We would be happy to discuss an arrangement that suits you and your schedule and works for both of us. You will receive full-support and will be a valued member of our small but dedicated team.

Send me a message or e-mail to talk to us about getting involved.
