What can you do to make that difference?We are a not-for-profit organisation who rely upon the generosity of grant givers, our service users, family, friends and others to raise income to provide the much needed services for disabled children, young people and adults.
Fundraising is vitally important to us and critical in helping us continue the work we do. The stark reality is that if we don’t raise money we will not be able to run our projects.
A great deal of what we have achieved up to now is due to the fact that we have been given time, resources, and skills free of charge. The Toddler Group monthly visitor activities is a good example of this – Tunes and Tales, children’s photographs, massage, Sing and Sign and visits from Santa all cost us nothing. We take this opportunity to thank all our supporters thus far – without your help we would not be where we are today.
We do not want to, and indeed cannot, rely on statutory agencies for income to provide services so please help if you can. You just need enthusiasm, persuasiveness, persistence, good social skills, and the ability to ask.
Whether it is 50p or £50,000, every penny can provide something which makes a difference and these small contributions can mean a lot. 50p would buy 5 photocopied sheets of important detail for 5 new families- we so often hear how difficult it is to obtain up-to-date information.
Carole raised funds recently …
Carole joined the ladies of the Budbrooke WI for their annual sponsored walk, which this year raised over £300! Budbrooke WI very generously pledged to raise funds for Entrust as their chosen beneficiary for 2016.

Thanks to The Frameworks for their gift of an iPad!How generous of The Frameworks, a London-based international company who, through friendship and word-of-mouth heard about our vision for supporting families caring for children, young people and adults with disabilities.
They understood how we’d find technology like the iPad really useful in various aspects of our work in providing short break activities, care, support, training and advice.
We’ll be using this particular gift for our one-to-one work with children and young people to support communication and as an activity aid.
Thanks again to Ben and the team! If you’d like to find out more for yourself about the work of Frameworks, click on the logo for a link to their website.
Thanks to a very special person who’s raised funds for us!Here’s our special supporter who completed the Two Castles run on 14th June and and raised an amazing £300 for Entrust! Lynne’s daughter Emma ran the 10 kilometres between Warwick and Kenilworth in an incredible 57 minutes -Emma, a really big THANK YOU!
Emma understands from personal experience the journey that a diagnosis of an additional need or disability can mean for a family as her daughter Florence has Cerebral Palsy and has promised that “All monies raised will go directly to provide services for disabled children and their families”.
A special message also goes out to all of you who sponsored Emma, your generosity is very much appreciated.
MASSIVE THANKS TO YOU EMMA – all of us here at Entrust really appreciate you running and raising funds for services for disabled children, young people and their families!
