Every single donation, no matter how big or small, really does make a difference to the lives of the amazing people we support. The money that you donate is directly invested in projects that develop people’s skills and enhance their social wellbeing.
If you would like to make a direct donation to support the work that we do, you can do so simply by clicking on the Virgin Money Giving donate button which will take you to our online Real Life Options charity donation page. And don’t forget, if you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an extra 25% in Gift Aid from the tax man on every donation at no extra cost to you. That means that a £10 donation can become £12.50. This makes an enormous difference so please opt to include gift aid if you are eligible.
On the other hand, if you would like to donate your time by fundraising for Real Life Options or becoming a Real Life Volunteer, please visit our Get Involved page.
“I like how my staff have known me for a long time and know how I like to be supported. I like to be encouraged to live independently."

"I enjoy my volunteering experience as it gives me a sense of enjoyment working with the people we support and other Real Life Options staff. It’s great to see people enjoy their time at the Centre and leave happy at the end of the day."
