Support us

If you would like to support CARA, there are lots of ways to do it:




Volunteers play a key role in CARA’s work.  We currently have a dedicated team of over 20 volunteers, who work in a range of roles including as counsellors, advocates, administrators and fundraisers.


If you are interested in volunteering at CARA, you can find details of current vacancies on our volunteer vacancies page, or you can contact for information about future opportunities.



You can make a one-off or regular donation through Just Giving or direct to CARA (contact for further details), or you can send a cheque payable to CARA to PO Box 548, Colchester CO1 1YP.  





We welcome anyone who wants to fundraise for CARA, and will support your fundraising if we can – we can provide collection boxes and buckets if you need them, and we will publicise fundraising events through our website Newsfeed and our social media feeds.  


You can find ideas about fundraising activities and tips and hints on how to do it here.


Fundraising pages can be set up through our page on Just Giving

If you are a UK tax payer and you Gift Aid your donation, CARA can reclaim tax on your donation – increasing the value of every £1 you donate to £1.25 for CARA.  For cheque donations, just fill in our Gift Aid form and send it to us with your cheque.  For online donations, Just Giving is authorised to collect gift aid on our behalf, so all you need to do is select the Gift Aid option as you donate.
