We have the highest ambitions for the young people at Prior's Court. To enable us to support them to reach their potential, we are continuously looking at ways to improve our facilities.
Each young person is funded through their Local Authority or Social Services, which covers their core provision, their day to day educational and care needs and the highly trained staff who support them. However, we aim to provide as much support as possible above and beyond the day to day care to encourage independence-building and offer vocational activities that will enable our young people to live a fulfilling and inclusive life.
Every activity or piece of equipment makes a difference to the young people in our care - we are proud of the progress they make and we would not be able to provide them with extended opportunities without your support.
Below are the current projects that need your support; either by making a donation or by organising or taking part in a fundraising event. You can also just click on the general donations link to give an unrestricted donation.
To see the impact previous fundraising Appeals have had on our young people, please click the 'completed projects' tab below.
