HOW TO DONATE
THIS IS HOW YOU’LL HELP
Every donation we receive contributes to providing every person on the OAPA pathway to employment programme, with the skills and stability needed for their smooth transition back into society and into a career for life.
OAPA is a free of charge programme it makes no charge for finding jobs and acts as the conduit between the hospitality industry and our partner charities supporting homeless people back into work.
You can make a one-off donation, contribute a monthly amount, give through your pay or even donate as you shop whichever way you donate, every penny counts to our charity! Please see the Other Ways to Donate section below for further information on the different ways you can make a difference today.
And finally, don’t forget!
If you are a UK Taxpayer, using Gift Aid when donating increases your donation by 25% without costing you a penny. So for every £1 donated, the charity currently receives £1.25 when you add Gift Aid. So don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box on your online donation to OAPA. See Tax Relief section for further details and information.

WHAT YOUR DONATION PROVIDES
Where OAPA members need additional short-term support with their rent, travel costs, uniforms and their initial living expenses this can be provided as a one-off stability grant. Applied for on their behalf by their supporting charity/association. No monies are paid to our members but directly to the supplier/provider.
