Donating to School-Home Support doesn’t have to cost you a penny. With Give As You Live, every time you purchase something from most online retailers, they’ll make a donation to us – at no extra cost to you! Perfect for when you’re doing your online Christmas shopping. Please sign up to Give As You Live now to help vulnerable children and families.

There’s a detailed page with how it works here but, in short, you can sign up, download the app or Chrome extension so that the small Give As You Live icon is in the corner of your screen, and that’s it! Start shopping and the retailer will donate a small percentage of your purchase cost to SHS. A huge range of major retailers are signed up to Give As You Live, such as M&S, John Lewis, ASOS,, John Lewis, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and many more, and it costs you absolutely nothing. If you’re still unsure, the Give as you Live website has an extensive Frequently Asked Questions page which should answer any queries you have.

In addition to being free, Give As You Live can actually save you money. By using the website, you get access to special voucher codes and discounts – for example, La Redoute are offering £25 off when you spend £50, £50 off when you spend £100, and £100 off when you spend £200.
