About Give Us A Break 2010

The Need

West Cumbria urgently needs a suitable Short Break Centre, located nearby, to support children with disabilities and their families. Currently, a suitable facility does not exist and/or would require extensive travel or financial commitment to access.

Our Goals

Provide and sustain a supportive environment which benefits the community where all children can be free and safe and able to develop themselves.

Provide a centre which is desperately needed in West Cumbria which provides short breaks for disabled and disadvantaged children, their carers, parents and families.

The centre will be fun and will encourage and facilitate play, running free in a safe, nurturing and happy environment.

Through development and provision of a short break centre, we will address a significant need in West Cumbria by providing a quality, accessible, planned short break services to eligible people with a disability, their families and carers.

To ensure all disabled and disadvantaged children and other young people in need have the right to play safely, express their views and feelings and play a part in the local community. Improve the quality of disabled and disadvantaged children?s lives and life experiences by providing a much needed Short Break Centre in West Cumbria.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
