Keren Caird, Retail Business Development Gift Aid Manager, Sue Ryder

“I have been a member of this working group since its formation. Since that time membership has grown considerably with representatives from large and small charities joining.  The group meets every three months, to discuss everything Gift Aid and share examples of best practice.

“The group has a close working relationship with HMRC officials, and they regularly attend the meetings. This gives the group a unique opportunity to influence future guidance and policies, with the overall goal of ‘future proofing’ Gift Aid as technological systems develop.

“I always feel motivated and well informed at the end of each meeting and really enjoy the opportunity to spend time with colleagues across the charity sector. I recommend that all charities operating Gift Aid get involved in this group.”

Margaret Lloyd, Trustee, Shropshire Cat Rescue

“As a small charity, obtaining all the information we need to know about Gift Aid can be a minefield. I have been receiving your emails for just under a year and find them very informative, especially as there is no one in the charity to discuss various matters with.”
