As with many charities, the last few years have been tough and we have found fundraising more difficult.
If you are looking to support a local charity, either as an individual, school or group, then why not nominate DSE21 as your charity of choice.
How We Use Funds
DSE21 is a purely voluntary organisation run by parents and carers. All our committee members are volunteers, there are no wages, no offices, and no rent to cover, and apart from administrative costs for stationery, postage, printing and consumables all the money raised is directed towards our cause.
- Subsidised outings. Many of our member families find it challenging and costly to take part in activities. Our days out allow families the freedom to enjoy time out with other members and their families.
- Organising opportunities. We believe passionately about giving people with Downs Syndrome the chance to experience opportunities others may take for granted. These include our weekly football sessions , annual Firebreak Course with Essex Fire and Rescue, and residential experiences
- Providing small grants. We recognise that there are lots of small charities working within our area which also support our members and their families. We therefore will give small funds to support those organisations to keep doing the good work they do.
- We also take part in training and information sessions for schools, professionals and other local groups
More than 90% of our vital income comes from voluntary donations. Any sum you can donate, no matter how small, is hugely appreciated.
