A donation helps Unlock continue to support people to overcome past difficulties and move forward with hope to make a positive contribution to society – we appreciate every penny.
You can donate online by using the safe and secure Give As You Live
One-off or regular donations
You can send a cheque, payable to ‘Unlock’, to Unlock, MCSC, 39-48 Marsham Street, Maidstone, Kent, ME14 1HH
A regular donation, however small, makes a huge difference to us. If you wish to set up a standing order – please contact email@example.com for more information.
Please support our campaign
We need your help to challenge the government in the Supreme Court. Please support us in our Crowdjustice appeal and help us to wipe DBS checks clean of old and minor criminal records.
If you are a UK taxpayer, for every £1 that you give, the government will give an extra 25p – at no extra cost to you. Please download and complete our donation form so that we can make a claim.
Leave us a gift in your will
Help us to continue to give hope to people with convictions long into the future by leaving us a gift in your will. It’s easy to do, and your gift will be exempt from inheritance tax. Make sure you include our charity number on the will document: 1079046. Talk to your solicitor or read advice from the Charities Aid Foundation. If you do include Unlock in your Will, it would be helpful if you would let us know by downloading and filling out a Legacy Pledge Form. This will help us to plan for the future and to thank you for your compassion and support.
Be our hero!
You don’t have to give your own money – use your skills and charm to get other people to give us cash! There are many ways from the dramatic – take part in a sponsored event in aid of Unlock – to the simple – shop online through GiveAsYouLive
Unfortunately we don’t have the in-house resources to support community fundraising, so we’d be doubly grateful to receive donations from you where you’ve gone that extra mile to act independently.
If you have any questions about any aspect of our fundraising, or need help with a sponsorship event, please contact Julie Harmsworth on 01622 230705 email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Unlock, MCSC, 39-48 Marsham Street Maidstone Kent ME14 1HH
If you help us, you’ll be in good company! See this list of the funders who currently support Unlock
