Donate Now

Thank you for wanting to make a donation to CADAS. It’s much appreciated.

Every penny you donate will help us support some of the most vulnerable people in our county.
Without donations from generous people like you, our service could not continue.

£5 could help a volunteer support or advise vulnerable callers over the phone for a morning.
£15 could provide specialised equipment for delivering acu-stimulation therapy to vulnerable clients in recovery.
£30 could pay for a 30-minute school assembly to make young people more aware of issues around drug and alcohol use.
£50 could pay for an one hour of recovery support work with a vulnerable client.

To make a one-off payment or commit to a regular monthly donation (by credit card or PayPal), click here.

And if you like the idea of making a regular donation, why not join the Allerdale & Lakeland Lottery and choose us as your cause?

For as little as £1 a week you could join the Saturday night draw for cash prizes up to £25,000 and half of your ticket price comes straight to CADAS. Just click here to sign up.

You can also donate money directly by BACS: sort code: 40-52-40; account number: 00012176

Emily's Story
“When I first came to CADAS I was really down about the problems I was facing, but talking about them has put them in to context and made me realise that I am not the bad person I feel I am"
