Support a skill

What does it mean to ‘support a skill’?

We support over 1,500 people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs across London. 

COVID-19 restrictions have been tough, and not being able to see people and do our usual activities has been hugely challenging. That’s why we want to raise £15,000 so people we support can learn new skills and be creative. 
People don’t want to sit around – they want to paint works of art, develop theatre skills, learn to cook new things and easily connect with others to share their new skills (and masterpieces!). 
Your donation means we can buy arts and crafts supplies, stationery, computer tablets, gardening supplies, cooking equipment and more. These items will enable people to learn new skills, hone existing ones and fire up some creativity.
So please support a skill today. We know that with your help, people can learn new skills and thrive.
