How do you fundraise?

We fundraise from a variety of different sources. We currently receive funding from the Big Lottery Fund, as well as other trusts and foundations. We also run events like our annual art exhibition to help raise funds and spread the word about learning disabilities in the local community. We also rely on the generosity of local people who want to improve our community for people with learning disabilities – by becoming a Friend of Sunnybank these people help us keep our commitment to being there for those who need us for as long as they need us.

How many volunteers do you have?

We have over 160 amazing volunteers – taking on over 180 different roles – who give up their time to ensure Sunnybank can support as many people as possible.

How many supported volunteers do you have?

We currently have 11 supported volunteers. These are people with learning disabilities who volunteer to help run Sunnybank services, to promote Sunnybank in the local community, or as fundraisers.

How many people go to Kites Club?

The number of Kites Club attendees changes every week and can be affected by things like bad weather, traffic, or a lack of transport for our members. On average we have anywhere between 40 and 80 attendees with learning disabilities, plus carers/family and volunteers.
