Other ways to support us

A regular donation is quick and easy to set up, and allows us to continue to grow and improve the care and education we provide.

Thank you for supporting Sheiling School!

As a registered charity, we rely on the generosity of our community of donors, sponsors and business supporters to help ensure our young people receive the best education, care and therapy services.  Your donations and support help to make up the shortfall in what is provided by the local authority to enable us to offer children with special educational needs the care and education they deserve.







“Since being at Sheiling School Louis is like a different child. He at last has a smile on his face!”


Our Projects

We would love to purchase more Sensory Equipment, such as footballs, balance boards, scooters and a rowing machine  for our pupils.  This can help with many problems such as  balance, mobility, dexterity, co-ordination as well as a creative platform for fun and social engagement


By leaving a gift in your will (a legacy) you can make a lasting difference to ensure that the Sheiling School’s invaluable provision continues into the future.If you’d like more information about leaving a legacy to the Sheiling School please contact us.

You can make a secure and direct donation to the Sheiling School via the following link:

Make a donation using Virgin Money Giving

Virgin Money Giving is a 100% not-for-profit charity fundraising website. It’s designed purely to help people raise more money online, without taking a penny in profit. They pass on Gift Aid in full and ensure that charities receive donations within a week. So more money goes where it’s needed – directly to charity.

Raising money for the Sheiling School using easyfundraising is straight forward and completely free. First you need to register with them and tell them that you want to support us. From then on, instead of going directly to the retailer’s website, log into easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as you would normally. But because you visited easyfundraising first, the Sheiling School receives a donation. The donation is usually a percentage of how much you spend but it might also be a set amount. It really is that simple! Registered retailers include Amazon, M&S, Boden, John Lewis, Argos and 2000 other well known names.

Alternatively you can simply make a direct donation by cash or cheque
