Community Connections Appeal

Our Community Connections Appeal is raising £25,000 to reach out and help carers  spend time with their family and friends – to enjoy hobbies and activities in their community. Help us reach out and raise a smile.

£20 would pay for a trip to the cinema

£50 could give a carer a much needed afternoon off to spend with friends or family

£200 would give a carer a weekend off – something many carers haven’t had for years

Raise a smile!

  • Make us your charity of the year
  • Host a fundraising pub quiz
  • Organise a fundraising Friday at work

From charity balls, to bake sales, or maybe you’d like to set yourself a personal challenge – whatever you love to do or want to do – turn it into an amazing fundraiser and help us to support even more carers.

Our friendly fundraising team are here to help you make it a success. We can visit your group or company, or give you a call to talk things through. Email us today at

Other ways to support us

200 Club

Our 200 Club is a mini lottery draw held every month with half the takings going to Carer Support Wiltshire and the other half being given out as cash prizes. It’s a fun and easy way to help us raise money and support even more carers.  Download and print an entry form here.

By shopping at, you can raise money for us without spending a penny. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know – same products, same prices – but with a big difference. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible purchases to Carer Support Wiltshire, every time you shop.

Simply login to your Amazon account at, select us as your chosen charity, and start shopping! Amazon will remember your selection and donate money to us every time you shop through the AmazonSmile website.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving (also known as ‘give as you earn’ or ‘workplace giving’) provides us with a regular, reliable income, helping us to plan better so we can help more carers in Wiltshire.

Donating a little every month straight from your pay is a hassle-free way to support us, whilst making your donation go further. It’s tax-free, which means every £1 you give us will only cost you 80p, or 60p if you’re a higher rate tax payer (the tax man donates the rest!).

You decide how much you would like to donate from your monthly salary. That amount is then automatically deducted from your gross pay, on the same day every month.

You can set up your regular donation by filling out this online form.
