We are extremely grateful for the valuable support of charitable trusts and other charitable organizations.
Grants from trusts and foundations enable us to purchase additional and unaffordable equipment needed to improve the service we provide and enable people using our services to achieve so much more.
Grants also help us to undertake new projects and can provide us with core funding to ensure the continuation of our valuable services into the future.
We are looking for funding through charitable trusts for the following projects:
Low Vision Centre
- Emotional Support Counselling Service
- IT 4 Kids Equipment
- Community Services
- I-Contact Information Courses
- Community Services Team Funding
- New ‘Cause & Effect’ Sensory Room
- Physiotherapy Equipment
Local visually impaired school children are benefiting from a generous £7650 grant from the Ernest Cook Trust. Focus Birmingham will use the grant to help children with sight loss fully maintain their educational potential by supplying them with easily magnified electronic book readers. The ICT for kids e-readers project is run by our Low Vision Centre and fully funded by generous grants from charitable Trusts. www.ernestcooktrust.org.uk
Thanks to the People’s Postcode Community Trust we have received £7569 towards our project to refurbish the much loved and well used sensory room in our Elizabeth Gunn Day Centre. Focus Birmingham is really grateful for their support.
