Like other small charities we can’t survive without funding and donations from charitable foundations, organisations and our wonderful community of fundraisers. We are so grateful for your support which is making such a difference to our work. Every penny counts and contributes towards providing, support and respite to carers. Since 2016, we have given away 190 free holidays to carers of loved ones living with life-limiting and terminal conditions – but we can’t continue to do this without your help!

There are lots of ways to get involved, and no matter how much you raise it will make a huge difference.

Different ideas that you can build into your normal week

We acknowledge that fundraising can be time-consuming. Some events require you to devote large amounts of energy training to improve fitness levels. So for those of you struggling with this, we have some answers.

Shop via Amazon Smile

Shop via Amazon Smile and Amazon will give 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT and other shipping fees) of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to After Umbrage.
