Since 1903, our charitable aim has been to see that no adult is denied access to education on the basis of social, economic or personal disadvantage.

You can support our work by giving us a donation or leaving a gift in your will. If you would like to find out more about what your donation will provide or to find out more information, contact Learn about the ways you can donate below:

Set up a regular donation

You can really help us in our work, by setting up a regular donation through a direct debit or recurring card payment via the Virgin Money Giving link above. Even a modest donation can make all the difference. Alternatively, you can download our Regular Giving form

Make a single donation online

If you would like to make a single donation, the WEA is using Virgin Money Giving. You can simply donate or you can use Virgin's service to set up a fundraising event and promote it online.

Gifts in wills

Our 2019 impact report demonstrates the value of the WEA and how the ‘WEA effect’ on people’s lives creates real change. We know that adult education offer benefits to our communities for generations and our dream is to double the number of WEA students over the next 7 years, enabling the WEA to support even more adults to return to education or continue their learning journey with us. 

If the time is ever right, and after you have provided for those closest to you, a gift in your will, even just 1% of your estate, can make a real difference to those following in your footsteps. 

It is quick and easy to make a gift to the WEA in your will. 

All you need is our name (Workers’ Educational Association) and our Registered Charity Number (1112775 in England & Wales and SC039239 in Scotland) and your solicitor can make your changes in just a few minutes.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact our National Fundraising Manager, Margaret Keane via or by phone on 07766 368 388
