Supporting Us

How you can help us

Our committee members and volunteers contribute their time and resources to Winchester Go LD across a wide range of activities.

Fundraising

We would also welcome your involvement in fundraising for the charity.   Would you like to organise a sponsored event?   Click here to visit our BT My Donate Fundraising site.

Fundraising is vitally important to us.  Each year we need to raise money to meet the cost of our services – only a small part of our income is from statutory sources.

By making a donation you can help us to provide:

£10 one Afternoon Tea session – usually 10 – 15 members attend each session

£50 weekly Circuits Sessional Workers – usually 20 members attend each session

£250 for each Person Centred Plan – 1:1 staff time to complete a plan over 6 weeks

£500 for a 6 week training course for 8 members

Find out more about ideas for fundraising and our forthcoming events on our Fundraising Events menu.

Employers

Are you an employer looking for staff?

  • You may be interested to know that research from the Joseph Rowntree Trust shows that people with learning disabilities are generally reliable, more likely to stay with one employer for a long time and tend to take less time off
  • Our members have a variety of skills and experience and we are always looking for more temporary or full-time employment opportunities.
  • We are always interested in finding more work experience and employment opportunities
