Firstly, we'd like to say thank you to everyone who has chosen to support our campaign whether it's making a pledge or sharing the crowdfunding page with friends and family.
Our project which launched in July has seen us raise a fantastic £652 so far but we are still not at our target yet!
The main goal of this crowdfunder is to help invest in technology that will bring our service users together and tackle isolation. We want to supply at least 6 of our more isolated service users with tablets and mobile data plans allowing them to access video calls and online educational media to maintain engagement during covid-19 lockdown. At around £200 each, we have set an initial target of £1200 to help us achieve this goal with scope for funding further projects should we exceed this.
It's really easy to pledge your support, all you need to do is click "Support us now" on the crowdfunder widget below and it'll take you straight to our crowdfunder page.
Our vision is a society in which those with additional needs are supported to reach their potential, lead productive lives, and have a real sense of belonging. Our mission is to:
Improve skills – Provide supported opportunities for service users to develop new skills or maintain existing ones in a practical workshop setting.
Reduce isolation – Offer a supportive, dignified space where people feel comfortable and valued, provide opportunities for social participation and widen horizons with new experiences.
Increase well-being – Contribute towards the greater well-being of service users by providing a quality service and linking up with partner organisations to provide specialist support for identified needs.
All of these feed into our wider aim of increasing meaningful opportunities for those who use our services.
Thank you so much for your continued support. Please stay tuned to our social media and website for more updates as we progress into safely re-opening in the coming weeks.
