Extratime will never be self sustaining and will always rely heavily on raising additional funds through other charities and fundraising events we can organise ourselves. Approximately one third of our income comes from fees, one third from statutory funding (local and national government sources), and one third we have to raise from other charities, trusts, fundraising events like the Brighton Marathon, as well as private and corporate donations.
We are particularly grateful for your support through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) have become even more isolated due to lockdown. They are confused and distressed by social distancing measures which many of them can’t understand. Parent carers are increasingly struggling to cope without school places or a short break from their caring responsibilities.
In accordance with government guidance we have been forced to close our usual clubs and schemes. Please visit Extratime@Home and Extratime’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) statement to see how we are adapting our services in response to the crisis.
Companies can play a major role in helping us provide the specialist support our children need to have fun, try new things and spend time with their friends. We have a host of fundraising and volunteering opportunities for you and your team to meet your corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy.→ See More
The easiest way to help us support more children and young people with disabilities and their families is to donate. Whether it’s a one-off gift or a monthly set up, however large or small, your donation will make a big difference.
