Become a Friend

The Friends of The Connection is our sister charity which fundraises on our behalf. By joining the Friends with a suggested donation of £15 a year, you become part of a likeminded community who support the work of The Connection. As a Friend you are also given the opportunity to attend talks, volunteer and take part in fundraising activities to support our work.

Concessions: If you’re under 30, you can become a Friend for £5.


We are supported by a wide range of funders. If you have links to a charitable trust or foundation and would like to know more about our work and/ or current funding needs, please contact Maria Holmlund on maria.holmlund@cstm.org.uk.

Leaving a Legacy

We understand that when you are writing a Will, your family and loved ones will be your first priority. Once you have provided for those closest to you, you may consider including a gift to The Connection that could one day transform people’s lives.

If you would like to discuss legacies further with a member of our fundraising team please contact Taiana De Ruyck Soares on Taiana.DeRuyckSoares@cstm.org.uk.

Giving in Memory

Some families want to make sure that the memory of a loved one lives on. One wonderful and meaningful way you can do that is by supporting a cause that was dear to the heart of your loved one and their family by giving in their memory.


Gifting a donation of £5,000 or more could support our clients for years to come. To become a major donor for The Connection please email philanthropy@cstm.org.uk

However you choose to support us, you’ll become a valued part of The Connection community. Thank you.
