Reasons to donate:

The Elfrida Society is a well established grassroots organisation, trusted and respected by the people with Learning Disabilities we work with and a wide range of separate organisations with whom we work in partnership.  

A lot of the activities and opportunities at Elfrida are not fully funded, we rely on donations and people paying for services and activities.  

We want to provide much more than we are currently able to, we need more funding to do that. 

We run a range of appeals for specific projects as well as ongoing appeals so that we can offer opportunities to more people.

Some people with learning disabilities have personal budgets to pay for support and activities.  Most people do not meet the criteria and cannot afford to pay for activities.

We rely on donations so we can do more work, connecting with more people with Learning Disabilities and working to make lives happier and more fun filled!

Our Future plans

We are currently completing funding bids to apply for grant funding from a range of Charitable Trust foundations.  This is to enable us to develop new areas of work, based on what people have told us is most important.

We are also planning in the next 3 years to move our main office to new premises.  Our current office space is not fully accessible and due to planning restrictions we are not able to make adjustments necessary to make it fit for purpose.  The work involved in relocating is substantial and we need funding and support to help us do this.

We also need to carry out a review of the structure of the organisation to make sure we are making best use of our resources.  We are looking for specialist support and funding to help us carry out this work.
