Give through Work

Your workplace is another great place where you can raise money for CADAS, even if you’re all working from home at the moment. We all need to do something to brighten up those Zoom and Teams meetings a little…

Please tell all your colleagues how to get involved with donating, sponsoring, running events or raising money just by shopping online, or why not organise a dress-down/fancy dress day, sign up for Dry January or Stoptober together or use a colourful CADAS collection tin as your ‘swear box’?

Phil Newton of Skills Shop in Barrow, and Jill and Kevin Woods of Small Planet Travel in Kirkby Lonsdale are fellow members of local business network BNI Kendal.
Both generously donated a percentage of their takings to us last year to help us mark our 40th birthday. Thank you, all!

Did you know that if your company gives money to charity, you’re entitled to Corporation Tax relief, too?
So it’s really a win-win. Visit our Tax and Charitable Giving page to find out more.

If you would like a more formal relationship with CADAS, as part of your social value or CSR strategy, please contact our CEO, Leigh Williams, on 07786 620159.

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"
