2018/19 Fundraising Events

We are a local, independent charity so we regularly engage in fundraising events to help raise vital funds for the charity and enjoy ourselves along the way.

What we plan to do with the funds raised:

Unmet demand for our service has increased threefold. With your help, we plan to increase our opening hours and the number of users we are able to see. From our research, 20% of people can't self-help because they lack IT skills, are too stressed or unconfident. A trained volunteer in reception at each of our walk-in face-to-face sessions across the district would be able to support and guide some users, without the need for an appointment. .

Potentially, this new service would increase access to our service; reduce waiting times and relieve the demand on our volunteer advisers. Importantly, users would leave armed with the tools they need to resolve their issues and feel more confident. .
