How you can help us?

Although affiliated with a national body we don’t receive any regular national or regional funding. We have to raise every penny to run our activities. We always try to run our activities at the lowest cost possible, including offering many free places.


Your fundraising and donations allow us to continue providing services to the community.

Everyone should have a fair chance to discover who they are and what they can become
