We have nearly transformed three quarters of our building, making it barrier-free. When our Centre has been fully transformed and occupied, we will be financially self-sufficient. In the meantime we rely on voluntary donations to develop our services and to further our other work.
A generous donation from the John James Foundation enabled us to provide an extra 3,000 sq ft of barrier-free space.
We used this donation to transform Spur 7 and create a coffee lounge, office space for VCT and additional conference and community space - the wonderful Dawn James room that can accommodate up to 50 people.
We still require money to complete the transformation of the Vassall Centre into the first barrier-free facility of its kind in the UK.
As we receive no statutory funding, we are a truly independent, user-led organisation.
In addition to the income we generate from renting out space and conference facilities we also fundraise to bring in the money we need. We are continually seeking support and donations from the general public, trusts and foundations and other funding bodies. We also try to raise money and obtain support from clubs, groups and businesses.
