You can become a Friend of Brake by volunteering, campaigning, fundraising or providing a donation in support of our work. Read our Friend of Brake brochure for more info about how you can support us.
Make a regular donation
Regular donations give us a predictable income, allowing us to commit to more educational, campaigning and victim support work. We also pay less in processing fees than for one-off donations.
Remember, if you are a UK taxpayer, add Gift Aid and Brake will receive an extra 25p for every pound you donate.

Other ways to donate:
- post a cheque payable to Brake to PO Box 548, Huddersfield HD1 2XZ (please say who it's from and how it was raised, including your email address if you want to get our email bulletin). If you're sending a cheque to us, we would be extremely grateful if you could spend a moment completing a Gift Aid form (download here) and pop it in the envelope with your donation.

Other ways to support Brake:
Every penny donated goes towards Brake's work campaigning for safer roads and supporting families bereaved and hurt in road crashes. For example:
£10 allows Brake to provide a free picture book for a child who has been bereaved in a road crash, to help them begin to understand their loss, and to give guidance to their carers
£50 enables us to operate our helpline for an hour, providing vital support to people devastated by road death and injury
£150 enables Brake to train 20 people to become campaigners for road safety in their community
£450 helps Brake to coordinate a road safety campaign in a local community to help people achieve safer roads
