How you can help

You can make a donation

  • online, at no cost to you, here.
  • by sending a cheque, payable to IHHC. If you are a taxpayer, please download and complete
    a Gift Aid form, which makes every 1 you pay worth 1.25 to us, at no cost to you.
  • by completing a standing order. You can make regular donations to help children and families - either annually or monthly.

We would be thrilled if you wanted to organise an event, or a sponsored activity, to help us.
Please get in touch so we can discuss how to work together.



4 August: Letter from Family Support Practitioner: "The family of five have spent the last six months living at the [homeless support unit]. They are under high levels of stress I have proposed that they go to Pleasurewood Hills as part of an organised day trip together".

5 August: IHHC provided funding for transport, park entrance and food

23 August: "I have just returned from their home, where the children were running through detailed descriptions of every ride and showing me pictures of their day out. This provided a day of much needed respite and would not have been possible without [IHHC]."
