Vital services and support for disabled, elderly and other vulnerable people in and around Kent
Compaid provides vital services and support for disabled, elderly and other vulnerable people in and around Kent to overcome the multiple barriers of social, digital and economic exclusion that they face every day.
Through Compaid’s digital skills training and accessible transport, these vulnerable people are able to live confidently and independently to maximise their opportunities. Last year saw over 1,600 adults and children using one or more of Compaid’s services.
Fighting social exclusion through accessible transport
Social exclusion affects millions of people across the UK, leading to poor physical and mental health. Its impact on health has been found comparable to smoking 15 cigarettes a day and more serious than obesity.
Compaid’s accessible transport for disabled adults and children enables them to get to school and attend further education and training, as well as to go shopping and get their prescriptions, attend day centres, access community support, and to keep hospital and other medical appointments.
Your leftover currency enables Compaid to reach more vulnerable people
With your support, a bit of loose foreign currency will do so much for so many, reaching more vulnerable people in need of Compaid’s vital services. With your donations, Compaid can help even more disabled and vulnerable people to live their lives to the full.
Compaid is a registered UK charity with Charity Number 1064160. You can contact Compaid by telephone on 01892- 834539 or via email on [email protected].
Donate your leftover travel money to Compaid
Do you have a drawer or jam jar, filled with foreign coins, left over travel money from previous holidays? Would you consider donating that forgotten currency to help fund a good cause?
It's easy to donate your leftover holiday cash; Simply fill out our charity exchange form and send it along with your currency to our London office. We will exchange all currency, coins and notes, foreign and domestic, and donate the exchange value plus 5% extra to Compaid.
How much of my donation goes to Compaid?
We donate the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to Compaid. There are no fees, neither do we subtract any commission. You will receive a confirmation email, containing the amount donate. We will share this information with Compaid.
Which banknotes and coins can I donate?
You can donate any coins or notes, foreign or domestic. We will exchange whatever currency you send us and will donate the combined exchange value plus five percent extra to Compaid.
We will exchange currencies listed on our exchangeable currencies page against the exchange rates shows.
All other banknotes and coins will be exchanged against their numismatic value, bullion value or scrap metal value, whichever is higher. It helps if you sort the currency before you send it. But if you are unable to sort your currency, don't worry. We will take care of the sorting and counting free of charge.
