Why choose payroll giving and what will my gift achieve?

You will help us to save children from the streets of the UK, India and East Africa.

Sign up for a regular payroll gift and we make you a promise, we will use your donation wisely to give vulnerable children the care, support and skills they need to steer their lives away from danger, and on to a better future.

Your gift will be used wherever the need is greatest, for children on the streets in real need.

It will support the longer-term planning of projects

Regular monthly giving means that we can plan long term projects, reaching as many people as possible.

£3 a month across a year could help to buy tools for a family in Kenya to get started cultivating their land and supporting themselves, keeping their children off the streets.

£4 a month could to support the training of child health volunteers in India, who will in turn reach countless children living on the streets and railway stations.

£5 a month could ensure two young people have their calls to a UK helpline answered.

Give the amount that suits you - there's no minimum or maximum amount.


It is the most tax-efficient way to donate.

The donation you make is tax-free to you, meaning that your money goes further. Find an explanation of the tax benefits here.

It's easy!

Payroll giving is so simple to set up and maintain. Your gift is deducted straight from your salary, so you never have to remember to pay it. You can also amend or stop your donations at any time.

Many companies now match employee donations. Why not find out if yours does and make your donation go even further!

And if your company does not have a payroll scheme, you can set up a regular donation to Railway Children.
