Donations and Legacies

Having a break is vital for the men, women and children in every community who dedicate their time to caring for someone else.

With medical advances and an ageing population, there are going to be more and more Carers. We need to make sure we continue our services to give as many Carers living in Barking & Dagenham plus Thurrock Young Carers, the support and information that will assist them in their caring role.

To make a donation you can:

  • Drop into our office at 334 Heathway, Dagenham, RM10 8NJ telephone number 0208 593 4422, e mail carers@carersentre.org.uk
  • Send a cheque payable to Carers of Barking & Dagenham, and post to the above address.
  • Click HERE to be directed to our donation page to find out how to donate online.

Legacies - How to leave a Legacy

It is easy to include a gift to Carers of Barking & Dagenham in your Will, but you should always consult a professional, such as a solicitor or financial adviser, to be sure your Will reflects your exact intentions and you understand tax implications.

A legacy of any size really makes a difference in our ability to help local carers. When you are next considering writing or updating your Will, all you would have to do is contact your professional advisers and tell them the sum (or percentage of your estate) that you would like to leave us. Your adviser will need only our charity name, address and registered charity number.
