The National Association of Official Prison Visitors (NAOPV) no longer receives an annual grant from the Ministry of Justice so our only income is member subscriptions and donations. We welcome contributions from individuals or organisations who support our work. You can donate by visiting our page on the Charities Aid Foundation website. We use CAF to process donation payments. Alternatively, you can send your donation to the General Secretary at 33, Daleside, Greetland, Halifax, HX4 8QD. Cheques should be made payable to ‘National Association of Official Prison Visitors’. If you would like a receipt, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. Furthermore if you are a UK taxpayer you can boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate – at no cost to yourself.
