Social, leisure and learning for people with disabilities
Support Us

Delivering a wide range of services to over 200 adults and young people with sensory, physical or learning disabilities across Norfolk costs around £200,000 per year and recent changes in the way national, and local government fund social care means that all this money now has to be raised through fees and charges paid by people using the services BUILD provides, through grants from charitable trusts and funds raised by individuals, groups and businesses.

We prefer to think of raising money as "securing investment" rather than "fundraising" as any money donated to BUILD from an individual, group of colleagues, or friends, or direct from a charitable trust or business is invested in providing much needed services and opportunities for our beneficiaries.

There are a wide range of ways that people can support, or invest in BUILD.

  • Nominate BUILD as the "Charity of the Year" for your employer or community organisation
  • Complete a team or personal challenge and get friends and colleagues to sponsor you
  • Host a "BUILD Barbecue" or "BUILD Bun Bake" for us, and your friends
  • Choose BUILD as the benefitting charity for donations instead of sending Christmas Cards to the people you see everyday
  • Follow the link through Easysearch and Easyfundraising - if you do your shopping on line, or use an internet search engine such as Google, go to this site and register to support BUILD as every time you search, or make a purchase, funds are donated to BUILD.

When BUILD works with businesses, and people wanting to support, or invest in us, we believe it should be a partnership. That is why we always ask that when you are thinking about helping us, we talk together to explore how best we can work together, using our contacts and networks to promote your event, or recognise your achievements. We can provide help in producing sponsor forms, marketing materials, send our promotional roadshow to your event so your donors know where their money is going. Our investment needs to respond to yours.
