We believe that the people we support have the same right as anyone else to pursue their dreams and transform their lives, living in, and contributing to, their local community. Your fundraising efforts can make this happen!

We need people like you to join our fundraising effort to bring much-needed support to people with a learning disability, acquired brain injury or autism. Whether you want to take on a sponsored challenge, organise an event or ask for donations instead of presents for that special celebration, there are plenty of ways you can help. We’ll support you along the way to help you make the most of your fundraising activities.

How your donations can help?

  • £15 could provide the support needed for a child to take part in a swimming session
  • £50 for a child to take part in a 1 week  holiday scheme
  • £100 to fund an after-school art activity session for 10 children
  • £270 for a personal development course for parents / carers
  • £2000 to buy “learning disability” friendly computer kit

How will your support make a difference?

When you fundraise for Positive Futures, you can be guaranteed that your entire donation will be used within Northern Ireland. Your fundraising will provide the support that makes a real difference to the quality of someone’s life. That support can range from providing specialist equipment and support for people who have limited or no verbal communication, through to after school activities that develop a child’s social skills, increasing their self–confidence and gives mum and dad the chance for a break from their caring responsibilities.

Be Remembered For Your Kindness

We know that writing or updating a will is very personal and that providing for the people you love is your priority.

Once you have done that you might want to consider a gift to Positive Futures. Gifts of any size will make a huge difference to people with learning disability, acquired brain injury or autism.

More information on the importance of having a will and how to leave a legacy gift is available at https://willtogive.org/

Fundraising ideas

If you enjoy organising nights out, family reunions or the office party, then why not get some helpers together and put on a fun event for Positive Futures? Whether it’s a pampering evening in with friends, a night at the races or a craft fair in a local hall, with your organising skills and our support you could be selling the hottest tickets in town. We’re here to help, so get in touch to have a chat about your ideas.

Fundraise at Work

Bring some fun into your working day with team challenges, themed tea–parties or fancy dress. 

Raising money for a good cause with your colleagues and corporate sponsorship can boost team morale and raise your social responsibility profile in the local community.

Fundraise at School

Harness the enthusiasm of your school or college community to raise awareness and funds.

From the tried and tested non–uniform day to a school treasure hunt – the only limit is your imagination! We can help by providing speakers for assemblies and promotional materials.

Challenge Yourself

What would your friends, family and colleagues pay to see you do? 

From a ‘Talk Like a Pirate Day’ challenge all the way to running a marathon, a sponsored challenge is a great way to raise funds. If you’re stuck for ideas, contact us for an informal, no pressure chat.
