Fundraising over the years has definitely developed into great ways to raise funds and support for important causes. But the importance of fundraising and awareness has never changed.
Why is fundraising important for the disability community?
Unfortunately, there will be certain expenses associated with having a disability that won’t always be covered by the government or the NHS. While it’s important to continue fighting for more funding and equality, the reality is that people with disabilities, whether they’re hidden or not, will sometimes need to raise funds in order to pay for their needs.
Fundraising is a great tool for families, organisations, and schools to raise the funds required to help support this vulnerable community. Some other benefits to meeting new members of your fundraiser are:
- Another person to help support your campaign.
- Spreads the word about your fundraiser.
- Engages and gets to know your team and the community.
Another great thing about fundraising is that you can donate online! If you’re not local to the charity fundraiser, there will more than likely be a way you can donate on a website, text message, or phone call. So, no matter where you are in the world, you can still help change the lives of a person in need.
What we do here at Equal Education Chances
At Equal Education Chances, we pride ourselves on dedicating our work to improving the lives of young children, and adults, with disabilities.
We offer our advice and guidance to marginalised communities and fully support them to learn and develop skills academically, socially and vocationally. These skills will help them to become more confident and financially independent, with the end goal being they achieve their long life goals.
No child or adult with disabilities should have to feel like they’re alone in the world. With our strong bonded family forum sessions in Blackley, we allow them to engage and interact in activities and talk to others who may be in the same boat as them.
Over the years, we have hosted many successful fundraising events which you can view on our website! We are so proud of what we do and the feeling of helping others is so rewarding.
