What are Everyday living products?

With our supporters in mind, National Osteoporosis Society has carefully chosen a range of products to help make everyday life easier and support independent living. Our products offer practical solutions, to help make essential tasks such as walking and dressing simpler.

We've chosen all our products to help people with osteoporosis, although they're suitable for people of all ages and abilities. We source our products from reputable manufacturers and make sure they are of the highest quality.

We do strongly advise you to check with your healthcare professional before buying equipment to make sure it's suitable for you.

Several products in the Daily Living Aids range qualify for VAT exemption and are available to buy VAT exempt for those with an eligible medical condition.  Please make sure you've read our vat exemption information before ordering.

Gift Aid and donations

What is Gift Aid? 

Gift Aid is a government scheme allowing charities to reclaim tax on donations UK taxpayers make. This effectively increases a donation without affecting the donor in any way. For every £1 you give National Osteoporosis Society, we'll get an extra 25p from HM Revenue and Customs.

We won't be able to claim Gift Aid on purchases you make from the online shop. However, if you're a UK taxpayer, with your permission we can claim Gift Aid on any donation you make when placing an order.

How to make a donation

You can donate to National Osteoporosis Society through our online shop at the point of checkout.

How we claim Gift Aid on your donation

If you're a UK taxpayer and want National Osteoporosis Society to receive Gift Aid on your donation, please tick the Gift Aid declaration at the point of checkout. Your status as a taxpayer will be confirmed and allow us to claim Gift Aid.

Your declaration will be kept on record by National Osteoporosis Society. If you'd like to change your Gift Aid status, or if you stop paying tax, please contact us on 01761 473120.

Where are your terms and conditions?
