This year has shown everyone just how important technology is for keeping in touch with family, friends, loved ones, and even colleagues.

However, people with disabilities do not have the same access to vital communications technology as the general population.

You can help us to change this.

Your support can help us provide more people we support with access to technology so they can communicate with loved ones and others.

How your donations help people with disabilities

Earlier this year donations from supporters like you provided laptops for use by twelve people across two of our services in West Sussex.

The laptops helped people to speak with their family and friends regularly during lockdown. They were also able to join in with online activities, such as exercise classes and social events, organised by United Response and other organisations.

I really enjoy the laptop – I am able to watch films with my friends and keep in contact with my friends and family over Skype and Zoom. I was also able to work out how to work the computer quickly – I am very proud of myself. For the first time, I am sending emails to friends and family and using Zoom about 3 times a week.


I enjoy being able to listen to all types of music on the laptop with my wife Sheila – we dance around our living room listening to it. I am also really proud that I am able to work the laptop without staff support. I also print my art supplies off of the computer through our printer – I enjoy this because I can draw/paint what I like.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows United Response to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to United Response we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like United Response to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that United Response will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When United Response receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
