So where does the money come from? Each person we support receives a budget from Cheshire East which is intended to meet their basic care needs. As we all know, local authorities are continually challenged by central government – now more than ever before – to drive down costs, including those of adult care. So those budgets are very tight and they are getting tighter every month………………
Rossendale needs to fundraise to provide the things that make a difference; that change baseline care into a life with opportunities and choices, like WorkTaste, like Oakwood. A life with some of the possibilities in it that all of us enjoy.

All these materials will help you reach your sponsorship target or organise your own event. With lots of great ideas for fundraising, how to spread the word about your event, and how the money you raise for The Rossendale Trust helps adults with learning disabilities have the freedom to live the lives they choose within their local community.
For years, many people with learning disabilities have been kept ‘behind the scenes’.
By providing a space for one of our collection tins, you’re helping to raise awareness and funds which help local people with learning disabilities to live the lives they choose.
On average one collection tin will raise £60 a year. Multiply this by 100 and just imagine how many dreams can come true with £6,000 of your loose change!
Could your workplace, local shop, pub, leisure centre, garage or hairdresser, home a tin to support adults with learning disabilities?
For more information or if you could be a collection tin coordinator for us, please contact the fundraising team on 01260 252216 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fundraising at your school, university, college or nursery can be rewarding, educational and fun.
It’s a brilliant way to support adults with learning disabilities.
Raising money for charity not only helps motivate school children to think of others less fortunate than themselves, but it also brings a great sense of community spirit and good citizenship to everyone involved.
We’ll help you fundraise by providing you with materials such as collection tins, posters and balloons along with providing guidance for events and templates for quizzes, storytelling and colouring competitions.
Here are just a few ways to kick-start your fundraising:

Why leave a gift?
How major gifts help us
Your support and generosity enables us to deliver essential services and plan for the future. We rely on donations to help us. Our services are funded by the local authority and we ensure that all of those we support have the best possible care. It does not cover the cost of innovative projects and enhanced services which truly enable people with learning disabilities to live a fulfilling and active life within their local community.
As such we are seeking to maximise our fundraising potential to enable us to pay for these enhanced services which sit outside the remit of our core budget and statutory funding.
As a supporter you will;
