Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do if I or my loved one needs something that the NHS cannot provide?
If you or your loved one are a patient of Purbeck Primary Care Network and have a terminal
diagnosis, talk to your community nurse or GP. Tell them what help you’d like us to provide and ask
them to get in touch with us (we don’t have direct contact with patients or their families, but only
with primary care staff).
How are decisions made regarding agreeing to people’s requests?
ACT has 3 trustees who are individually able to agree to smaller, less costly items. As long as the
requests meet the criteria of our constitution (i.e., to assist in the care and comfort of terminally ill
patients at home in Purbeck), we can give approval quickly and supply the need. In the case of larger,
more expensive items, at least two out of three of the trustees will consider and discuss the request.
Will my gift be taxed?
If you’re a UK taxpayer, we can reclaim the basic rate of tax you’ve already paid on your donation.
This means that a £1 donation is worth £1.25 to the charity. All you need to do is complete our Gift
Aid Declaration.
How can I be assured my money will go direct to people in Purbeck?

ACT works solely with the Purbeck Primary Care Network through liaison with its Community Nurses and Community Support Workers so that our help can go directly to local people. We have very low administrative costs and the charity is run by volunteers, so you can be reassured that your money will go where it’s needed.
