Supporting Basis

In addition to donating funds via Justtgiving , directly via Direct Debit or through inkind donations (food, clothes etc.),  there are many other ways you can help us such as:

  • Volunteering
  • Events
  • Corporate Giving
  • Legacy Giving

We equally appreciate supporters sharing our messages on social media  and/or challenging stigma and judgment against the women and young people we work with – either on Twitter or Facebook.

Gorporate Giving
Leaving a legacy

Many of our volunteers stay with us for a large number of years and find it very rewarding   Currently, our wonderful volunteers  mainly help us with our outreach services (including with netreach), drop-in, data processing (M&E and otherwise), administrative tasks or awareness raising but we’d also be interested in some volunteers for our young people’s work (particularly group work).

Why not watch this short video about volunteering at Basis?

Volunteering opportunities at Basis include:

Back Office support: Admin tasks, answering the phone, updating spreadsheets, packing condoms, fundraising and so on (Mon- Thu usual office hours)

Drop in support (Mon–  Tue – Wed afternoon) for Basis Sexwork

Outreach support (Mon – Wed and Fri evenings/night) for Basis Sexwork

Young People: Supporting ex-service user group (Lionesses) evening fortnightly

If you are interested in volunteering please complete and return our Volunteer Application Form. Please be aware that we are a small organisation and it may be some time before we get back to you.


Regardless of the task, we offer each volunteer a short induction process, including a familiarization with the values of the organisation and we undertake a DBS check on each volunteer.

 Each volunteer should sign up to the (free) safeguarding training offered by Leeds City Council.




If you are thinking of running a marathon, climbing a mountain, a dryathon or holding a bake sale at the office – why not support Basis Yorkshire at the same time?

We can help you set up your Justgiving page – just get in touch!

We’re also happy to help with any information or leaflets and if you let us know we”lll share your progress through social media!

As a staff team, we usually do a few events of our own, last year we participated in the following:

Triathlon in York

Semer Water

Walk up the Holmfirth

Corporate giving

As a small, locally based charity, we have an excellent reputation in delivery high quality, innovative interventions, addressing extremely challenging, sensitive issues and advocating for the needs of our services users, locally and nationally.

If you are interested in becoming involved either as your charity of the year, or simply by wanting to make a one – off monetary or in-kind donation, offer opportunities for staff, take part in one of our fundraising events, we’d be happy to talk to you about how your support would help us and talk through ideas of what this could look like.  We’re always happy to come and talk about our work

Why not get in touch?

By leaving a legacy to Basis Yorkshire you will leave a lasting benefit to some of the most marginalised girls and young people in Yorkshire.
