I am looking for funding so that I can deliver events in Doncaster that are accessible for all.

Doncaster Idea stage


This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

My vision is to deliver events across Doncaster that bring together the community and make a real difference for people that live, work and visit Doncaster whilst creating a sense of place and belonging. Through setting up an access group for various community groups, organisations, charities and businesses I aim to understand what events are needed in Doncaster spaces so that various organisations, including (but not limited to) physical mobility & impairment, autism and dementia can provide their service users with the opportunity to experience events in an accessible way. The funding will be used to invest in event equipment so that these can be utilised in a variety of venues to connect and empower the community whilst helping people everybody to achieve their full potential and bring the heritage of the town to life.

What we'll deliver:

  • Set up access group to identify events needed
  • Invest in event equipment to enable mobilisation of events across different spaces

Why it's a great idea:

Doncaster is a growing town with city aspirations. The time is now to create changes that we know work in other places. With a diverse community on the doorstep, and significant investments being made across the borough, there is an opportunity to create a new programme of events in Doncaster that brings together the community in a new way. Through forming an access group, this will provide opportunities for organisations to put forward their needs and wants, and help to identify needs of Doncaster people whilst strengthening community cohesion, building social capacity and supporting the health and well- being of people in the borough. By supporting this crowdfunding project, you can help to shape change in Doncaster by bringing the community together in engaging and inspiring events that can be accessed by all.

Steps to get it done:

  • Set up first access group meeting
  • Needs anaylsis to create events that are accessible for all
  • Invest in equipment required to deliver events
