Our aim is to support organisations such as social services, special needs schools and schools within deprived areas, hospitals, hospices, domestic violence safe houses that house children and families. We help and support children to have essentials to be able to put a smile on their faces, support their learning and development with essential items that many of us take for granted Our Christmas appeal saw over 11,272 toys and gifts delivered and distributed across the West Midlands to families who were in need and whose children were going to go without a Christmas present. Throughout 2019 we've run projects to benefit children and families across Wolverhampton by working with a lot of the organisations we supported over Christmas, with different projects on a weekly basis. So far since January 2019 we have delivered toys, toiletries, books, colouring books, craft items, Easter eggs etc to over 60 different organisations, schools, churches, domestic violence safe house & hospitals.

The Way to Give a Child a Chance joined Crowdfund Wolves3 weeks ago

Providing young people with the opportunities to try something new, at a level they feel comfortable and safe, is a key element to what we do at The Way. We broaden young people’s horizons and break down the barriers to participation. Every week we will offer scheduled “Try” sessions that throughout the year that do not require young people to have previous experience or skills. Quite the opposite, in fact. We actively encourage new participants. We want young people to gain life experiences and find activities that they like and enjoy. They may even uncover a skill they never knew they had. Examples of “Try” sessions: Sports: cricket, football, touch rugby, basketball, netball, racket sports, climbing, athletics and gym sessions. Art: pottery, Manga art, computer-based art, textiles, fashion design, drawing and painting – all in our recently refurbished and extended art room. Performing Arts: various genres of dance, learning to play musical instruments, drama, singing and karaoke.

Good Shepherd's New Homeless Centre
Good Shepherd's New Homeless Centre joined Crowdfund Wolves3 weeks ago

The Good Shepherd was established in 2003 by the Brothers of Saint John of God to address poverty, homelessness and inequality in Wolverhampton. We support people to obtain accommodation, move towards employment, access training or education and develop skills to build self-reliance. The new premises on Waterloo Road contains space for us to deliver all our existing services but at a much higher standard. We will establish a “one stop shop” that will include the food service, temporary overnight accommodation delivered by Enterprise Homes Group, clinical space, counselling rooms and a multi-agency hub. We're currently refurbishing the building and need to raise funds for the shower block and laundry facilities. We've already raised and invested over £165,000 into the new centre. The shower and laundry will be available for people in the night shelter or who are street homeless.
