Fundraising & Donations
Can you Help Us?
SupportLine urgently needs donations to keep the service running. Fundraising Volunteers urgently needed, see Fundraising Section for details.
We have to constantly apply for grants and donations and it is very difficult for smaller organisations to survive. Limited funding means we cannot be open for as many hours as we like and additional funding will enable us to increase our opening hours and to develop and expand our work by enabling us in the future to train additional helpline support workers, thereby enabling us to support more callers in need. We would love to be able to answer every call coming in to us, sadly lack of funding prevents us from doing that, we would love to be open more hours, we would love to have more helpline support workers - but we need help!
Throughout the year we also organise our own fundraising events with the support of our Patron, Glen Murphy.
Can you help us by...
Any amount however small will be an enormous help to us - you can make a donation by cheque or credit card - please click on Donate link.
If you are an individual or a member of a club or society, we would welcome any fundraising help you can give. (all fundraisers will be sent a Fundraising Certificate personally signed by our Patron, Glen Murphy).

Sponsorship of our work and events

Major sponsors are invited to the aftermatch reception with the celebrities and have their details included on all publicity.
Additional sponsorship of events would enable us to hold more fundraising events throughout the year thereby raising much needed funds
Donations in kind - We are always in need of merchandise to use as prizes on our Children's and Adults Tombolas such as toys, bottles, etc. at our fundraising events and also raffle prizes. We also need items which we can auction to raise funds for the charity.
Making a grant - If you are a Trustee of a Grant Making Trust and can consider making a grant to SupportLine please contact us.
Your support will enable us to continue supporting callers. we believe our work does make a real difference as can be seen by reading the 'feedback from callers' section.

Momentum builds for law change following Bob Higgins child sexual abuse case
A campaign to include child sexual abuse among those “serious crimes” for which suspects can be retried gathered momentum on Monday with the backing of former footballers and a series of charities.
SupportLine's article in Anything Goes Lifestyle magazine:
Let's Talk About Grief
Grief is the natural response we get when we lose a loved one, someone we cared for and someone who meant something to us.
One Small Word – Surviving Childhood Abuse by Gloria F Eveleigh
Gloria released her novel which is based on her experiences of childhood sexual abuse in the hope it would help others. Gloria was invited to submit her novel to the Truth Project, part of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. SupportLine was delighted to have been asked to write the foreword to this book, a copy of which can be bought on Amazon.
