Why Donate to Steps2Recovery?

Steps2Recovery clients often come to us having lived chaotic lives for a number of years, and with no immediate access to Local Authority funding. We passionately believe that clients should be able to access treatment based on need, regardless of their ability to access funding.

In order to be able to do this, we rely on the fundraising efforts of our trustees and the generosity of our supporters. There are a number of ways that you can help us. You can donate using the buttons below, or make a direct donation to our bank account. Email for our bank account details. And don’t forget to Gift Aid!

Leave a Legacy

Leaving a gift in your will

Over recent years Steps2Recovery has been extremely grateful to a number of supporters who have made provision for the charity in their wills. Their foresight and generosity has had a significant impact on our ability to operate effectively as an organisation that raises all of its own funds with out recourse to statutory or government support

Why leave a gift in your will?

Any legacy gift – large or small – makes a real and tangible difference to the future of Steps2Recovery.

Recent times have shown us how important our services are for the recovery of addicts and alcoholics trapped in the cycle of addiction, homelessness, prison and short prison sentences. A legacy gift will help us to remove people from this revolving door. They benefit as individuals, their communities become safer places and friends and families are reunited – everyone benefits.

Tax benefits

If your estate is worth more than £325,000, inheritance tax is usually charged at 40% above this threshold. This may vary depending on the situation, so please check with your solicitor.

Giving a gift in your will to Steps2Recovery could have two potential tax benefits:

  • Charitable gifts are exempt from inheritance tax, so including a charitable gift in your estate would reduce the amount of tax due from the estate.
  • There is a tax reduction for those leaving 10% or more of their estate to charity. This reduced rate is 36%, as opposed to 40%.

How to leave a gift in your will

If you are creating your will, find a solicitor near you who can talk you through the steps.

Our thanks to you

Giving a gift in your will is a meaningful gesture that makes a lasting difference.

What I like about the programme is that it’s built on freedom and trust. Can’t go the the shops in other places. The onus is on you – your recovery is about you. Its whether you’re ready to do it.

There’s no us and them with the staff, it helps me feel comfortable.

The rooms are good for a residential. There’s good privacy and the hygiene is good.

When I had nowhere to take my son over Christmas, the staff helped me to manage him and stay on the programme.

S2R Client

The team spread positivity and lovingness in the house. and that gets picked up by as a way to behave by the clients. They tailor treatment and their approach to the individual and you feel they’re equal. not setting themselves up above us.

S2R Client

It’s not just drug use. Here I’ve realised there are other things to address, like offending behaviour. There’s lots of different aspects.

S2R Client

We’re here because we want to be here. It’s a place where you can go for hope – not somewhere you’re told to go. None of that authority – being told – that we rebel against.

S2R Client

My Problem with other rehabs has been that I can’t cope with the move from a closed community to the outside world and I’ve always relapsed. This works for me because I’m still in the outside world while I’m on the programme and I’m learning to manage my own time and make my own choices with support.
