Did you know it costs hundreds of thousands each year to keep the doors of our dementia support centre open?
As a local independent charity we are constantly looking for ways to raise funds so that we can continue to run services for people with dementia.
There are so many ways you can raise funds for BIADS. If you have a fundraising idea such as running a marathon, throwing yourself from a plane or having a coffee morning on our behalf we’d love to hear from you. We can even help with your publicity and sponsorship forms.
Every year it costs hundreds of thousands for BIADS and our dedicated Dementia Support Centre to run and stay open to help people with dementia and their carers live well. A high percentage of these costs have to be raised via fundraising efforts and donations. There are so many ways you can fundraise on behalf of BIADS. Here are just a few:
These are just a selection of the ways you can help to raise much needed monies for BIADS. Whatever you decide to do, your efforts are greatly appreciated by everyone here at BIADS and those we provide support for.
Please remember to let us know about your fundraising plans so we can help promote/provide our logo where required and ensure your efforts comply with the new Code of Fundraising Practice.
As a thank you for your fundraising efforts you will receive a shiny BIADS certificate to display on your wall.
As a local independent charity, BIADS relies on the fundraising efforts and contributions of those living and working in Barnsley to help us raise the funds we need every year to keep our doors open.
The support and services we offer are vital in ensuring people with dementia and their carers live well. We currently help over 200 families affected by this disease and want to help even more. There are so many ways your organisation can show its support for BIADS. Here are just a few:
If you think your organisation could help, whilst benefitting your employees too, we’d love to discuss how we could develop ideas unique to your organisation, for the maximum mutual benefit.
To discuss corporate fundraising please email Emma Atack at: email@example.com or use the contact link at the bottom of the page.
BIADS would not be able to run the services we do without our amazing volunteers and if you could join us you too could help those people of Barnsley affected by dementia.
Would you like to make a real difference to the life of someone with dementia? Do you like having fun? Then why not apply to become a volunteer at BIADS.
If you have any free time, we want to hear from you. We have lots of different opportunities and we are sure we could match you with a service that will suit you. Here are just a few ideas that may be of interest you:
We are always keen to meet talented volunteers that want to support the activities we run at BIADS Support Centre, circle dancing, Jabadao assistants, the gym, activity and life story work and much more. Maybe you have a talent you think our members might enjoy, singing, playing an instrument, just let us know.
The vital volunteers that man the kitchen making drinks, serving and washing up, preparing for activity sessions and tidying up afterwards. Maybe you would like to help us maintain the grounds around the centre on a regular basis or would just like to volunteer for collection days and help us raise funds.
