Donate to six local causes

As an employee, you can donate to six local causes with just one donation from your payroll. The charities that make up Northern Ireland Charities Together (NICT) include: Age NI, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke, RNIB (sight loss charity), Childline/NSPCC and Young Lives vs Cancer (previously known as CLIC Sargent).

Giving a regular gift through your payroll is easy to set up, tax efficient and it makes a huge difference to the lives of thousands of people across Northern Ireland who face daily challenges.

Simply download our form here, fill it in and give it to your HR department. Remember that payroll giving is tax efficient, so a £10 monthly donation from you is only £8 a month from your monthly pay (based on average salary).

6 out of 10 strokes could be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle & managing high blood pressure! So here are Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke’s Top Tips for a Healthy Blood Pressure Reduce Salt Intake - Adults should eat no more than 6g of salt a day (approx. a teaspoonful). Read the labels on food packaging, choose foods lower in salt and try replacing salt with pepper, herbs and spices to add flavour. Be More Active - Move more and sit less! Adults should aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity physical activity each week. 2 days of strengthening exercises should also be included. Maintain a Healthy Weight - Being overweight means your heart must work harder to do everyday tasks- this leads to high blood pressure. Maintaining a healthy weight involves a combination of eating a healthy diet and being more physically active. Limit Alcohol Intake - Drinking too much alcohol increases the risk of high blood pressure and can cause weight gain. We should drink no more than 14 units of alcohol per week, with several alcohol-free days. Men should have no more than 8 units and women no more than 6 units of alcohol per session. Increase Fruit and Vegetable Consumption - Fruit and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals, along with fibre which help to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and improve our heart health. We should aim for 5 portions a day which can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced. Find out more about high blood pressure and our awareness campaign at www.nichs.org.uk/highbloodpressure ...

From Northern Ireland Charities Together (NICT’s) inception over 12 years’ ago, a whopping £1million has been raised by employees across Northern Ireland who give through their salary. NICT chairperson, Hazel Stirling, said, “We are hugely proud of reaching this £1million milestone and would like to thank our donors for their continued support – this really is a testament to people's generosity.Payroll Giving, also known as Give as You Earn is a tax efficient way of donating regularly to our charities. The donation comes from the gross salary of our donors, which means that a £5 donation to NICT only costs the donor £4 in their monthly pay – and the charity still receives the full £5.
