Localgiving is a not-for-profit organisation helping small local charities and community groups to reach more supporters, raise money and help more people. On our New Leaf Project Localgiving page you can make one off or regular donations to us. You can also Gift Aid if you are a UK tax payer, allowing us to increase the donation by at least 25 percent – at no extra cost to you. Please visit our Localgiving page to set up your gift and help our mentees turn their lives around.

Donate by text

If you are based in the UK, you can make a donation to New Leaf Project with just a quick text. All you need to do is text the code NEWLEAF30 and the amount you would like to donate to 70070. You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10. For example, if you’d like to donate £10, you’d text NEWLEAF30 £10 to the phone number 70070.

Text donations are completely free, with no cost to you for sending and your free allowance/bundle unaffected – the only charge will be the donation itself which will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your pay as you go credit. We receive 100% of your donation, including Gift Aid.

Raise money as you shop online with Give as you Live

Join thousands who already support their favourite cause through sign up to the Give as you Live online shopping scheme. Give as you Live will donate a commission to New Leaf Project’s charity Thames Valley Partnership every time you make an online purchase at one of the 3700 participating retailers (which include all the big names such as Tesco, Next, Amazon, John Lewis, Expedia and many more). You pay no extra for your purchase and simply shop online in the normal way. It’s simple to join up and install the Give as you live shopping browser add-on on your computer – thereafter everything else is more or less automated every time you shop – it’s really quick and easy.

So before you click online to book your summer holiday, buy groceries, DVDs or school uniforms, please consider signing up via our dedicated page or check out the explanatory video first and find out more. By doing so, you’ll be helping to raise vital funds to support our work. Thank you.

Support our Community Packs

New Leaf provides mentees with a Community Pack of basic essentials in a waterproof bag on their release from prison. It helps to prevent ill health, maintain personal hygiene and build self-esteem and confidence. We want to provide more packs but need your support to do so. Find out more about the initiative and how you can donate money or items, in our Community Pack leaflet.

Leave a gift in your will

There are many ways that you can give a gift to New Leaf Project. A gift in your will – large or small – can be a fantastic way to help. It costs you nothing now and helps us to plan, so that we can provide the best possible services in the future.

Types of gifts in wills:

  • Residual gift: This involves leaving a fixed share of your estate – once you have taken care of your family and loved ones – to a charity. The value of a residual gift is not reduced by inflation, so it is an effective way to remember a charity in your will.
  • Specific gift: A specific item - such as stocks and shares, a watch or jewellery – can be left in your will to a charity. Take professional advice in such circumstance to ensure the best chance of your wishes being met properly.
  • Pecuniary gift: This involves leaving an amount of money as a gift to a charity.

In Memory donations

People often ask friends and relatives to give a charity gift at their funeral, rather than buy flowers. If you would like gifts to be given to New Leaf Project in this way, we can send you a special In Memory request form which you can keep with your will. Alternatively, you can request special funeral or memorial collection envelopes in aid of New Leaf Project.

Give through eBay for charity

You can you support New Leaf Project by buying and selling on items on eBay. Buyers can shop for items knowing their supporting a good cause. Sellers, whether an individual or a business, can donate a percentage from any sale to the charity of their choice.  Why not sell items you no longer need and help us to make a difference? The amount you wish to donate is up to you and you can add Gift Aid.

How to start giving with eBay:

You can also browse items being sold on eBay with donations to New Leaf Project.

Add Gift Aid

If you’re a UK taxpayer, New Leaf Project can reclaim from HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) the tax portion of your donations. This increases your donation to us by at least 25 percent, at no extra cost to you.

To let us reclaim tax on any donations you’ve made or will make to New Leaf Project, please complete our Gift Aid Declaration Form and email to info@newleafproject.co.uk or send to:
