A LITTLE BACKGROUND
KASBAH was founded by a group of parents of children with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in 1966 with a desire to help other families in circumstances similar to their own. All of the support services are now open to any person with a physical and/or learning disabilities, including support for the parents, carers and families.
A message from Emma...
Hello from me,
The new office space at Gingerbread is working well, hopefully now you all know that the office staff have moved and DIAL remain at 7 The Hive in Northfleet, phone numbers remain the same. This additional space has helped us all to grow and develop, including the KASBAH services.
We are developing a range of new services in Medway; respite in and out of the family home, a specialist advisor service, outreach support and a peer group support scheme, when the finer details are confirmed we will update you all.
We regularly work with MAGIC and jointly combine holiday play schemes for disabled children which has enabled the KASBAH team to develop their skills and knowledge in this area and are always looking for new opportunities and gaps in services, so if you think we could be doing more or services are missing in your area please do let us know.
Emma - KASBAH Chief Officer

Gift Aid provides a great opportunity for you to increase the value of the donations you make to KASBAH. Provided you are a UK taxpayer, however you make your donations, KASBAH can reclaim the basic rate tax from the Inland Revenue, boosting the donation of every £1 to £1.25.
There are several different ways you can make a donation:
Donations can be made by cheque, postal order or cash and should be posted to:
KASBAH, 7 The Hive, Northfleet, Kent DA11 9DE.
Please make cheques and postal orders payable to KASBAH. We recommend that cash payments should only be sent using a secure mailing system (i.e. registered mail).
By Standing Order
If you want to make regular donations, payments by standing order are an effective way of doing this. You can make payments weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly to suit. Once the initial forms are completed, please return them to the KASBAH office for documenting, we will then forward them to your bank who will do the rest.
Many employers now operate Payroll Giving schemes. These schemes are tax efficient as they enable you to make a donation directly from your salary before tax has been deducted. This means that if you pay the basic rate of tax, for every £1.00 you give to KASBAH, it only costs you 78 pence. (For higher rate taxpayers the scheme has even greater advantages.)

Legacies are an effective way of making sure that your good intentions and our vital work continues into the future. Naturally, your first concern will be for your family and loved ones, but please consider helping us by including KASBAH with your will. Legacies are tax-free and simple to set up even if you do not currently have a will.
