Support Our Clients

Whilst we receive funding for most of our services, your support will enable us to see more people in need, continue with a service when funding ceases, and provide essential items to help clients live independently. There are several ways you can support us through donations or fundraising.

We appreciate whatever you can give because your donation will make a difference, and be used to provide support to people facing complex life challenges. This could be someone who has ‘no recourse to public funds’ so is unable to claim benefits, a young person living in supported accommodation, or someone who has been sleeping rough.

To see what your donation could go towards, click here.


Donate

You can donate online – one-off or set up a monthly donation directly through our website. We recognise that some people prefer to send us their donation as a cheque. If this suits you best, please make the cheque payable to Connection Support and send it to:

Finance Department
Connection Support,
The Old School,
First Turn,
Wolvercote,
Oxford,
OX2 8AH

You can also transfer your fundraising donation directly to our bank account or set up a standing order donation. If you’d like our bank details or a standing order form please contact our Finance Department.


Gifts in Wills

Gifts in Wills make an enormous impact on the work we can do to end homelessness across Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, enabling us to reach more people in need of support. We’ve partnered with Free Wills to provide our supporters with the opportunity to make their own fully comprehensive Will for free. You can make your personalised Will from the comfort of your home in just three simple steps, with live support from Will specialists. Each Will is checked by legal experts and can be updated quickly and easily for free, forever.
