The council has teamed up with non-profit organisation, Greater Change, to trial a new way of giving in Crawley.
Part of the diverted giving campaign, the contactless terminals will enable shoppers to donate directly to a local charity or to a person with a specific goal, ensuring every penny will be put towards helping those who need it most.
Founded in 2018, Greater Change focus on helping those who are homeless or facing homelessness reach long-term goals while enabling donors to find out more about the person behind the fundraising campaign.
Each person on the scheme is nominated by their support worker and the money will be used to help that individual access a specific goal set by the individual. This could include raising money for rent deposit, an educational course, tools or equipment or furniture for a new flat.
