Gift Aid

Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. Using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give, we will receive an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue. All donations made to our charity by UK taxpayers are eligible for Gift Aid, All you need to do is let us know in a written declaration.  You only need to inform us once to ensure that all of your subsequent donations are eligible. 

Legacies and Inheritance Tax

Any financial legacies or bequests left to CAIA are exempt from inheritance tax. As CAIA is a registered charity, any legacies donated to it are deducted from your estate before any tax liability is calculated.

Our charity is working hard to respond to the changing situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19) related issues. We do our best to continue to provide our services for our members and the Armenian community at large and ask for your patience during this challenging time.

Our staff and volunteers are working hard to continue supporting you in the best way that we can, whilst also staying on top of reducing risk of spreading infection and supporting our colleague who may be more at risk.

However, due to the current situation and in the best interest of all of us, we had to make some changes to our normal services. Starting from Monday 16 March 2020, all our services including the face-to-face advice work, the Parents & Toddlers Group, the English classes, Library, the elders lunch club and the youth club are suspended until further notice.

We ask that anyone experiencing Coronavirus symptoms or having to self-isolate due to being exposed to someone with coronavirus, does not attend Hayashen until further notice and call NHS 111 for advice.

However, as we wish to support you as best as we can, our advice work continues by telephone, email and online. You may contact us on 020 89924621 or use our website ( to leave an enquiry or email us on
