Watch our latest video to hear about the range of support services provided by Spurgeons to vulnerable children and families across the country.

No child should face life's struggles alone

In 1867, Baptist preacher and writer, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, was inspired by his faith to found an orphanage in London, offering vulnerable children care and education. Today, his work continues through Spurgeons Children's Charity.

The way in which we support children and families has changed enormously over 150 years.

We started with six boys and a single 'Matron'. Now, each year we will typically have contact with around 30,000 children and young people and protect hundreds from harm.

At Spurgeons, we believe every child deserves the opportunity to live a happy and hope-filled life; that no child should face abuse, neglect or uncertainty.

We couldn't do this without your support.

How can we help you?

Use our map to find your nearest service and how Spurgeons can support you. We support children and families across England in a variety of ways including; whole family support in children centres and family hubs, helping young carers, working with families affected by domestic abuse, delivering parenting courses, supporting families affected by imprisonment and preventing Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE).

Your support can help strengthen families, protect children, and restore hope.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Spurgeons to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Spurgeons we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Spurgeons to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Spurgeons will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Spurgeons receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
