Fundraising as a Company

Supporting Independent Options as a company has many mutual benefits. It provides the perfect opportunity to engage with staff in a common purpose, promoting positive team building and improving staff morale. A good event involving staff, friends, and family can generate fantastic positive PR for your company as well as raising much needed funds for Independent Options along the way.

By choosing Independent Options as your company’s charity of the year, you will be supporting a local charity to continue supporting people in your local area.

Isla's Story

Isla is three and a half years old and has been coming to the Children and Family Centre for around two years with her family.

At first Isla had no diagnosis, but it was clear to her parents that something was different from an early age as she had a short attention span and would have regular crises if other children came near her. Her speech was also delayed and she didn’t speak or make any verbal noises until the age of three.

By coming to The Centre, play around other children was normalised for Isla as she began to get used to other children being around and she loves coming to The Centre now. She enjoys the freedom to play in the garden or inside with the toys and crafts. Isla responds well to the staff and volunteers at The Centre and is confident to ask for help.

“Isla has speech and language delay but one of the first words Isla spoke was when she shouted “Messy Play!”, so we knew then how vital it was for her to come here.”
