As a small local charity we rely on fundraising and donations to be able to provide our services and support that runs at around £10,000 per year.
None of our Trustees are paid and we use volunteers wherever possible. We do sometimes pay people for their services, for examples tutors who provide specialist services and run groups.
We want everyone to enjoy our activities and groups, so wherever possible we provide them for free or subsidise them so that they can be accessible to all.
SBDSG is very fortunate to have been generously supported by organisations such as Rotary and Waitrose over the years.
Your support means the world to us, and we have seen people undertake all sorts of amazing challenges and events to raise money. Bike rides, sponsored walks, one couple asked guests at their wedding to give a donation instead of buying them a gift and another person raised money at their retirement party. We have sold beautiful artwork produced by one of our members with Down’s syndrome and run stalls at Christmas fairs selling chutneys and decorations made by the ADS group. There are also people who with incredible kindness donate money in memory of loved ones.
We are always bowled over by people’s generosity and thoughtfulness in supporting us and our Trustees work hard to ensure the money is used wisely.
All donations, no matter how small are greatly appreciated. If you would like to make an online donation – details are towards the bottom of the page. Or do contact us if you wish to discuss a donation or your fundraising idea.
There are a number of ways to get involved and this includes becoming a Trustee or helping out with groups and activities.
Trustees oversee the running of the Charity and meet once every two months to keep track of finances, activities and developments. Trustees may take on specific roles within the Committee for example Treasurer or Secretary, as well as leading on specific activities or projects. Interest from new people who may wish to become Trustees is welcomed and SBDSG is currently seeking interest from those who have younger and primary school aged children. We are a friendly group and will always make you welcome if you wish to become a Trustee.
Parents, carers and siblings often help out with activities on an occasional basis.
New ideas for groups and activities are always welcome. Please contact us if there is something you would like to see happen.
Our safeguarding policy ensures everyone who works directly with vulnerable adults or children and young people undergoes appropriate training and has a DBS check.
If you would like to get involved, please use the online form at the bottom of this page or contact us.
