 Gift Aid:  If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by allowing us to reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gifts now (in the past and in the future) at no extra cost to you. That’s a valuable 25p for every £1 you give.  To allow us to claim gift aid on your behalf, all we need is your full name, your full address, and your permission. This can be communicated by letter, email, over the phone or by downloading the form above.

A legacy gift will enable us to support even more older people and to enlarge and shape Whiteley’s future.  Your gift will make a considerable difference and allow us to be the best place to age in Britain.

In Memory Giving

Giving in memory of a loved one or friend is a very personal way of honouring their memory.

Gift donations can be collected in lieu of flowers at the funeral.   Most funeral directors are willing to collect the donations, handling the administration of the gifts for you, keeping you informed and making sure they are passed to The Whiteley Homes Trust. 

Please click here for more information.


Celebration Giving

hilaryCelebration giving is a recognised way to mark a special birthday, wedding, anniversary or event and to support The Whiteley Homes Trust.

Many of us have “everything we need”, so it makes sense to mark the special occasion and support others.  Simply by asking for celebration donations instead of gifts is easier for your guests as well.  Please accept our warmest thanks for your generosity and support.

If you have already or, if you intend to leave a legacy gift to The Whiteley Homes Trust, please accept our warmest thanks for your generosity and support.

Film and Photography

the_villageWhiteley Village is a stunning location. Set in 225 acres of mature woodland, our almshouse cottages and other buildings comprise the UK’s largest collection of Arts & Crafts buildings.

The Whiteley Homes Trust is happy to make the Village available for film and photography, and this enables us to raise funds for the Trust.  As a private estate we can often simplify issues such as access and road closures. We can also provide utilities and ample space for crew parking.
