The Payback Foundation
PayBack supports grant applications for named children aged seventeen or under with physical, emotional or learning difficulties and who live or go to school within a ten mile radius of one of our offices. PayBack also supports grants for organisations working with children who fit the above criteria.
Established in 1997, we have raised over £630,000, helping improve the lives of over 700 children and we were overwhelmed to win the Asda Best Contribution to Corporate Responsibility Award in 2015 for PayBack.
PayBack is administered by our employees and is funded entirely through voluntary donations and fundraising activities. Our colleagues don’t need much encouragement when it comes to supporting their local communities, and are always coming up with new fundraising ideas.
There are so many children who need and deserve our help. If there is anyone you know who could benefit from a PayBack grant, please email email@example.com
Meet some of our recipients
With a new P-Pod chair and Lycra suit from PayBack, Charlotte has greater support when sitting and walking, enabling her to enjoy more activities at home and at nursery with her twin brother, Daniel.
6 year-old Elena has dyspraxia, which causes her communication and co-ordination difficulties. A new trike has helped Elena to build up resilience and confidence to go out and play with her friends.
Jacob is 2 years old and has developmental delay and altered muscle tone, limiting his mobility. With a new custom-built trike from PayBack, Jacob now enjoys more independent movement and can go out to play.
Lyall communicates using Makaton sign language. The PayBack grant application for an iPad is helping Lyall to learn more signs and communicate more effectively with his friends and family.
Events and challenges we have completed
Tour D'Worx - August 2016
We are proud of our colleagues who cycled from our Reading office all the way to Antwerp to raise money for PayBack. Truly inspiring efforts, raising over £600 for our beloved charity!
On Thursday 23rd June 2016, a team of 25 SD Worx colleagues completed #5Peaks4PayBack, the epic challenge of walking the UK 5 Peaks challenge in 48 hours. In doing so, the team drove 2600km and walked 55km, raising a record breaking £30,100 in the process for The PayBack Foundation.
Social #ElfieSelfie Challenge
We ran a social campaign where the rules were simple; for every #ElfieSelfie received, SD Worx donated £1 to The PayBack Foundation. We were wowed by the amount of entries. Thanks to all our customers, colleagues, their families and even their pets for taking part!
