  • Donations

    If you want to make a donation, please use Localgiving, which allows you to make one off or a regular payment to us.

    If you specifically want to support our West Berkshire Centre, then donate through Find Me A Grant and Greenham Common Trust will double your donation!

    • One hour of Learning Through Play (LTP) costs us £22.50 per child.
    • Over a year at our three Centres we deliver 2,565 hours of LTP.
    • Core government funding provides around £10 per hour.
    • The remaining £12.50 must be raised by us.

    This is just over £250,000 for the year 2016-17.

    So what does your support mean to local families?

    • £12 provides one hour of support for one child.
    • £60 provides a full day of sessions for one child.
    • £1110 provides a half day session for one child for a whole academic year.
    • This includes support for the whole family.
  • If you would like to help us continue to help the families we do, please consider making a donation.

  • Legacies

    Why leave a gift?

    By leaving a gift in your Will, you’ll be helping to provide life-changing support to under 5’s with additional needs and disabilities and their families. Your support is crucial in enabling us to continue our work in years to come.

    A Will is one of the simplest ways to ensure that your wishes are followed and that the future of your family and friends – in fact all the people and causes you care about most – are provided for.

    How can you help?

    Get in touch with Janice Powell for further advice on how to leave a gift. You do not need to tell us if you are leaving a gift, but if you would like to we would love to know about it.

    T: 07495 445 965


    Download our codicil form – you can give this form to your solicitor to include a gift to Dingley’s Promise in your Will.
