Why donate?

Our Charitable Trust provides specialist interventions for young men with a known history of sexually harmful behaviours.

Underpinned by 50 years successful provision of therapeutic care, Glebe House offers an emotionally secure and monitored environment, which supports adolescent males who are a risk (emotionally and physically) to themselves, to children, to their families and to the wider community.

Residents are referred to us by local authorities and social services or as directed by the Court. Over an average of two years, residents are encouraged to recognise and effectively reduce risks and threats. The aim is to assist them to learn how to maintain socially and legally acceptable standards of behaviour, so that they can resume independent living in the future.

We receive no central government funding. Local authorities pay fees which cover the basic costs of care and education. However, these costs do not allow for any capital development, the up-keep of our buildings and site, or any of the extra curricular activities which others may take for granted and which our young men so desperately need.

You may be interested to know that we are now able to accept donations to our Charity via this website and should you wish to give on a one-off basis or donate regularly we would be most grateful for your support. You can be assured that your generosity will make a real difference to someone's life. You can also make a donation by cheque. Cheques should be made out to Friends Therapeutic Community Trust.

Every donation is gratefully received and will go towards helping us with projects such as:

  • Educational Trips
  • Supporting our young men as they establish themselves when re-entering the Community
  • Environmental sustainability projects
  • Young-person specific projects

How to leave us a gift in your Will

Leaving a legacy gift is an important decision, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.

We have information, support and advice available to make the process as easy as possible.

Here are the basics:

1. State in your Will that you would like to leave a gift to us. We recommend using a solicitor or professional Will-writer to make sure your Will is legal and valid.

2. Include our full name, to make sure the money goes to the right place: Friends Therapeutic Community Trust Appeal (Glebe House), Registered Charity Number in England and Wales (1124673), Company Number 6525659.

3. If you have already written us into your Will, we’re very grateful and would love it if you could let us know. Thank you!

What types of gifts can you leave?

There are many different types of gifts in people’s Wills, and we would be grateful for every single one.

Here are a couple of types of gifts you could leave us in your Will:

• A share of your estate. After you’ve provided for your family and friends, you can leave a share, or the remainder, of your estate to us. This is called a ‘residuary gift’.

• Cash gift. This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us, it’s known as a

‘pecuniary gift’.
