Donations to the work of 1Step2Step can be made as one off contributions or as a standing order on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis. Giving in a planned way by standing order is the best way to donate to help 1Step2Step because it helps us budget and plan for the future. It’s also cheaper, because there are no credit-card transaction fees and more efficient in terms of time and tax! It also helps you – giving by standing order allows you to budget and manage your giving. Because it all happens automatically, there’s nothing to think about and no forms to sign or post each month. You can print out a 1Step2Step Standing Order & Gift Aid Form, complete it and send it to us by post at the address below.
All donations will be used in the work to support and develop the skills of the children with disabilities in the Thai orphanage and to aid 1Step2Step to keep doing that. We have very little administration costs as everyone on committee and trustees are volunteers, receiving no payments at all. There may be occasions when donations are sought for specific resources or activities. Money raised will be specifically used, with any surplus going to the general fund.
You can donate via PayPal.

What do we need funds for?
The Work in Thailand
In the first instance the charity needs funds to have people on the ground in Thailand. This is our priority as the work in the orphanage is why 1Step2Step came into existence. Our vision is that in the future we will be able to increase the number of people working with the children in Thailand so we can work with more children. Monthly giving helps to meet our regular commitments. There will also be one off needs for items like equipment and furniture. We hope to be able to afford to have a fund put aside for medical needs for the children and trips and treats for them on special occasions. If you would like to know about any of these different forms of giving please contact us. We can also keep you up-to-date with events and projects through our web pages. If you want be added to the newsletter email distribution list please contact us.
1Step2Step have had the opportunity from time to time to take on individual special projects which are funded through our fund-raising events and one off donations. These have included sending 4 large containers of donated second-hand specialist equipment to Thailand for use in the local orphanages. We have also hosted two Disability Awareness Tours where members of the Thai authorities have visited the UK to see the practices and provision for people with disabilities here. We hope that there will be further opportunities for these kind of projects in the future.
1Step2Step has a UK committee of volunteers however, we do have some running costs e.g. insurance and other expenses. These are only a small part of our costs but we still rely on the generosity of our monthly contributions to cover these expenses.
