Make your donations go furtherGiftaid logo

Using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give, the infant trust gets an extra 28p from the Inland Revenue, making your donation go further. Your gift of £15 can turn into £19.23 through Gift Aid. £100 becomes £128.20.

This means 28% more on your gift towards work such as:

If you are paying the higher rate of income tax, your gift can go even further by giving through your payroll. For just £10 less each month from your take-home pay, the infant trust would receive nearly £17.

Please download a Donations and Gift Aid form and return it to our registered address at: the infant trust, Reeves & Co LLP, 4th Floor, Griffin House, 135 High Street, Crawley, West Sussex RH10 1DQ.

A steady stream of income is vital if our work is to continue and to grow. Regular gifts can really make a difference, for example:

Just £5 a month from you is worth nearly £100 a year to us if you Gift Aid it. £100 once a year is worth £641 over 5 years with Gift Aid.

If you can give more than that then please read about the infant trust AMBASSADORS programme.

To set up a regular gift by standing order, please download and complete a standing order form and return it to the infant trust, Stoke Court Cottage, Duffield Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4AA.

If you would like us to send you the standing order form and a stamped addressed envelope, please email

We are proud and honoured that our work has been recognised by the UK Prime Minister, and that he has given Lesley his Point of Light award, stating
With the Infant Trust Lesley has empowered thousands of women across South Africa to protect and safeguard children in their communities. The education and training she has provided has helped to improve the lives of over 800,000 children, tackling the violence and abuse that affects too many of them in their early years. As we mark International Women’s Day this week I am delighted to recognise all that Lesley has done.”

Why are so many small children abused by male perpetrators in South Africa? Our researcher interviewed 27 perpetrators in prison in South Africa; all are in jail after being found guilty of some of the most terrible crimes against some of the most vulnerable children – some as young as a few days old. Those interviewed are all men aged between 16 years and 84 years old, and all have brutalised and raped at least one child. But the findings aren’t maybe what we might expect – it makes interesting reading.  We have been funding research into this for 5 years and it is finally finished and published .

Our flagship Caring for Crèches programme has reached into some of the poorest communities in five of the nine provinces in South Africa and we have crèche leaders everywhere clamouring for the training. We have now trained over 2,200 people and they in turn have already positively impacted on the lives of over 160,000 children … and will continue to help many hundreds more children for years to come
