Donations & regular giving
Donate to Leeds Mencap to make a real difference.
Sadly, running our important services isn't cheap - please help to help local children and adults with learning disabilities. You can do this in a variety of ways:
Giving Leeds Mencap a regular gift means that we can plan better into the future and help even more children and adults. All you need to do is complete the standing order form below and gie it to your bank. Alternatively, please use the banka ccount information and you can set this up yourself online. If you prefer we can also set up a direct debit for you, please let us know if you would like us to do this.

You can also donate via cheque, please simply make the cheque payable to ‘Leeds Mencap’ and either drop it by, or post it to Leeds Mencap, East End Park, Leeds, LS9 9NE.
Finally, did you know that you can make every £1 you give – or have given – worth 25p more, just by telling us. This is because the government’s Gift Aid scheme allows Leeds Mencap to reclaim tax on donations. This means that you can make an even bigger difference at no extra cost to you!
For your donations to be eligible for Gift Aid you must pay an amount of income tax and/ or capital gains tax for each tax year (6 April one year to 5 April the next) that is at least equal to the tax that all charities and CASCs reclaim on your donations in the same tax year.
If you pay higher rate tax you can claim further tax relief in your Self Assessment tax return. You can download a Gift Aid declaration below.
