Make a Donation

Thank you for supporting SHAP with your donation

Fundraising is vital to our work. It helps to pay for the support that we give to vulnerable people. Without your donation, we simply wouldn’t be able to carry on with a lot of the things that we do.

Your donation of:

  • £10 will help pay for a Project Worker to take a young parent and her child to the local nursery for the first time
  • £30 will pay for a Project Worker to advise a teenager on how to manage their money
  • £15 will pay for a Project Worker to help to settle a homeless family into a temporary home
  • £30 will help us to support a homeless family in finding a place to live
  • £30 will contribute to the costs of providing support sessions to help someone reduce their drinking.
  • £25 will cover the cost of a Boxing Day meal for young parents and their children
  • £30 will pay for a group cooking session with three teenage parents
  • £35 will pay for a two hour coaching session with a vulnerable client, helping them to avoid more crises and take control of their life.
  • £130 will pay for us to provide furniture for a young homeless person’s new flat.

Any donation – from £5 to £100 – can help us run activities and trips for children and young people; provide them with equipment or help our staff to give them the support they need.

We are registered with several online giving sites which allow you to make single or regular donations using your credit or debit card:

Our Just Giving Pages


Just Giving

This website allows you to donate to Shap with a credit or debit card online.

The Giving Machine

If you shop on-line you can generate donations to Shap at no cost to yourself – the sales commission that on-line retailers generate is converted into charitable donations.

So next time you shop on-line why not generate a donation to Shap?

It’s really easy – just start your shopping by visiting The Giving Machine (type 62012 in the search box and you will be taken to the screen shown below).

Once you’re signed up and you start shopping those organisations that are using The Giving Machine will have a pop up icon in the corner like the one below. You just need to click on it to continue shopping and donating. You will however, need to sign into your account on each device you use (e.g. if you signed up on your phone it doesn’t automatically pop up on your PC/IPad etc.).

Amazon Smile

Amazon Smile is similar to the Giving Machine. It is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features. Your shopping experience stays the same, but every time you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to your chosen charity. The good news is shopping with AmazonSmile doesn’t cost you, or your chosen charity, any extra.

If you already have an Amazon account, you can begin shopping instantly.

  • Go to and log in as you would with Amazon.
  • Go to Your Account
  • Select Change your Charity
  • In the search box type Shap Ltd

The main thing to note with Amazon Smile is you always need to purchase your items through rather than the main Amazon site.

If you use the Amazon app:

  • Shop on the app as you would normally, adding items to your basket
  • Before you checkout, switch to on your mobile browser to complete the process.

If you use an Apple device:

  • Visit in your Safari browser
  • Tap the share button and scroll right to select ‘add to Home Screen’
  • Click add and then delete your old Amazon app.
