THANK YOU to everyone whose donations make 5 Quid for Life possible: without your support we wouldn’t exist; but because of your support, we can offer help and hope to those facing the double trauma of mental health problems and loss of benefits.


Please note that as of May 2017 our funds are running critically low. We are now using our reserve fund—our final £1,000—to issue grants. We have therefore reduced our maximum grant from £200 to £100 and we will soon be at the point where we will only be able to issue one or two grants per month. If you can help by making a donation or becoming a regular supporter, please do so: please see below for details. Thank you.

Donations may be made direct to the 5 Quid for Life bank account via online banking or in person at any bank; even better, of course, if you’re in a position to set up a standing order please:

5 Quid for Life operates on a 100% voluntary basis and all donations go entirely to those we support: we do not make any deductions, claim expenses or charge for our services. Please note, however, that PayPal deduct a small fee for their services from each donation, which is why we prefer direct donations to our bank account. Thank you.

Just say it: you know you want to...
