The UK's leading Shared Parenting charity

Gift Aid Declaration

If you are a UK taxpayer, Families Need Fathers can reclaim tax on any donations you make to the charity. FNF can also claim tax back from your membership subscription, as this counts as a donation. This means that for every £1 you give us we receive a further 25p at no extra cost to yourself.

It costs you nothing but a little time.

 

How to do this

To make a Gift Aid Declaration on-line to FAMILIES NEED FATHERS, Reg. Charity No. 276899 you must ensure that you have entered your Full Name and Address (including Post Code) in your Profile and that your email address is also up to date.  It would also be a help if you enter a telephone contact number.  Finally you must tick the Gift Aid check-box in your Profile in the Additional Information tab.  Doing so will confirm that you would like Families Need Fathers to reclaim tax on all qualifying subscriptions and donations since 6 April 2000 and all further subscriptions and donations that you make from the date of this declaration until you notify us otherwise. You also confirm that you have paid an amount of UK income tax or capital gains tax equal to any tax reclaimed.

Please notify the charity if:

  • You change your name or address
  • You no longer pay tax
  • You want to cancel your Gift Aid declaration at any time

NB. In order for us to reclaim tax you must be a UK taxpayer.

  • People on Universal Credit and other benefits, who do not live with their children, don't just struggle with rent but also with making Child Maintenance (CM) payments. When that happens the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) puts them into their 'Collect and Pay' service for which they are then surcharged by 20% by the government. A kind of 'pay-day loan' surcharge that mostly affects the poorest parents. Not surprisingly they then find it even more difficult to pay their CM and develop arrears. CM payments are not even taken into account in calculations of UC, hence ensuring that many remain below the poverty line and that increased income does not increase their take-home pay - precisely what UC was supposed to put an end to. It also makes their ex-partners angry that they are not receiving the CM that they have been told by CMS is their entitlement adding to their already stressed lives. UC and the benefits system need to look at the specific issues of separated parents to help solve the problems of families on low incomes rathe than compound them. Do tell your MP about this and ask him/her to seek a government response. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/feb/06/call-for-universal-credit-overhaul-amid-fears-of-looming-evictions-crisis Please support us by sharing this, liking it, following us on Facebook, registering with us for free on our website, making a donation or becoming a member.
  • The Guardian/Observer are seeking views on issues men face today, on masculinity, etc in the context of #MeToo.

  • Tracey Crouch MP for Chatham and Aylesford leads a Westminster debate today on supporting fathers in early years. We welcome this. Countries that support fathers, not least through much better paternity leave policies, also have greater involvement of dads with their children whether together or apart. Their society as a whole values them more. Fewer need to go to court. Children grow up healthier... and so do the adults. We will attend the debate this morning. https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/social-affairs/children-and-young-people/house/house-magazine/101416/tracey-crouch-we-need Please support FNF by liking this, sharing it, following us, registering for free, making a donation or becoming a member.
  • Good to see Esther Rantzen redressing the balance. We should not be tarring all men with the same brush or assuming that all or even most women are relative angels. Power can be abused. In family courts it often is. Stereotyping is unhelpful to finding solutions for separated parents - it creates the conditions of such abuse to the detriment of the children, their dads and, in the final analysis, mums too. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/esther-rantzen-hits-out-at-the-gillette-metoo-ad-saying-it-tars-all-men-with-same-brush-a4041186.html To support FNF please like this, share it, follow us, register for free, make a donation or become a member.
  • A leave to remove case that has gone terribly wrong and the child has been abducted. There is risk of harm if identified and almost certain harm from losing a father. Furthermore, it seems unlikely appeasement will work and doing nothing will certainly not deter others from such damaging action. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6593333/Ukrainian-wife-millionaire-Russian-flees-London-mansion-two-young-children.html Please support FNF by liking this post, sharing it, following us, registering for free on our website, making a donation or becoming a member.
  • A Whitehall source said that Rudd wanted “universal credit to receive a fresh parliamentary mandate and be personally sure the system is working in the interests of every claimant”. Let's hope that the "every claimant" bit means that they will ensure that Universal Credit takes into account Child Maintenance payments made by those in receipt of state benefits. Too many are now asked to make unaffordable payments and are driven to despair. If you are affected by this, ask your MP to raise with Amber Rudd and please let us know how you get on on admin@fnf.org.uk. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/jan/05/amber-rudd-to-delay-universal-credit-roll-out-pilot-study Please support our work by sharing this post, liking our page, registering for free, becoming a member or making a donation online.
