Commodore's Charity -Umbrella

 

Umbrella is a Derby based charity with whom we have forged links through Sailability.

 

At Umbrella, we support disabled children and young people up to the age of 30 along with parents, carers and siblings.

 

We run groups and activities as well as 1:1 and 2:1 supports to enable the children and young people to enjoy themselves in a safe environment whilst learning and having fun. We run support groups where families can get together and talk things over with others in similar situations and we have an information office at the Ronnie MacKeith Centre where families can access a range of information and support.

 

The need for our service is growing and we are becoming busier and busier. Although we receive funding from local authorities for the support hours we offer, we have to raise £50,000 a year to provide equipment, maintain our building and run our support groups.  

 

Outside of our network, not many people know about us and we would like to change this with your help. 

 

Thank you for taking time out to read our letter. If you want more information you can visit www.umbrella.uk.net or contact Kristin Clark on 01332 521229 ext 25.
