Help us buy our home

We want to buy our building, call it our home, revive and adapt it so all our children and young people who have severe physical and learning disabilities can have a safe place to play and learn. We want to create a safe and creative environment where real friendships can be made and enjoyed.

Location

Situation

We have moved 3 times in the last 10 years, this upheaval is upsetting and causes anxiety and loss. We have to rent premises via a lease and when this expires we have to move on. Leased premises don't have the right facilities for those we support, people are disadvantaged and have to 'make do' We cant get grants to update the buildings to make things better - such as a accessible bathroom, because the building is owned by a landlord.

Solution

When we raise the funds we can buy the building, we can make it accessible, we can add a new bathroom and add hoists so that our physically disabled children and young people can use it and spend more time here with their friends. We can call it our home, we can attract grants to help us modernise and upgrade lots of outdated and worn out areas. We wont have to move ever again, we will feel safe and secure, we will be able to use the building more and more. We can ensure continuity and relax.
