Volunteering at Mary’s Youth Club is about more than just helping. It’s about learning new skills, connecting with our young people and the community. Without a dynamic and enthusiastic team of volunteers, Mary’s Youth Club would not be able to achieve our goal in inspiring our young people to discover for themselves what they are capable of and inspire them to pursue their goals. By volunteering with us you will empower young people and build and develop your own relationships with our incredible team and community. We’re interested in all your life skills and experiences, and we’ll support and work with you to make the most out of Mary’s Youth Club for everyone.

Payroll Giving

Payroll giving allows you to make regular donations to Mary’s directly from your pay packet or occupational pension. Your donations are made before Income Tax is deducted, which means that you are given tax relief on your donation immediately – and at your highest rate of tax. 

For example:

  • You pledge £5
  • Which actually costs you £4 at the standard tax rate, or £3 at the higher tax rate
  • And Mary’s Youth Club receives the full £5

Who can use Payroll Giving?

You can use Payroll Giving if both of the following apply:

  • You are an employee or you get an occupational pension and your employer/pension provider deducts tax through the PAYE system
  • Your employer or pension provider operates a Payroll Giving scheme

How do you start Payroll Giving?

Most employers who operate a Payroll Giving scheme will have a form for you to complete to authorise the donations to be deducted from your regular pay. Please ask your employer for a copy of this form and complete the details. Your employer will then make arrangements with an agency who will transfer your donations to us. It would be great if you could also let us know that you will be donating in this way so that we can update our records and say thank you. You can contact us on 020 7183 2640 Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm, or send us a message. 


We’re always open to exploring new and interesting ways to work with potential partners.

What Can You Do?

Every company, big or small, has something special to offer. Whether that’s helping Mary’s to save money by offering services in-kind or getting your employees donating personally, we would be delighted to talk to you about the different ways your company can get involved. 

Gift-in-Kind and Pro-bono Support

We’re always keen to explore options to do even more for the service users we help, whether, by providing free travel, legal advice or advertising space.
