Why Support DanceSyndrome?

“I hadn’t discovered friendship before DanceSyndrome but now I have friends in my life - people who value me for who I am - it’s the most amazing experience ever!” Jen Blackwell

DanceSyndrome welcomes everyone and we enable every single participant’s voice to be heard and all ideas to be shared! We operate an inclusive co-produced and co-led model with people with learning disabilities and we empower everyone we work with to be included, to be visible and to have fun.

No other organisation is working in this inclusive way, and we have won many awards and accolades to recognise this.

DanceSyndrome is a small charity which makes a big impact. A major funding grant has helped us to achieve so much in such a short time, but this has now ended, and we are reliant on donations and sponsorship to meet the ever-growing demand for our services.

We are looking to re-open four new community face to face sessions in Lancashire and be able to support 100 new people with learning disabilities. We need £12,000 to do this.

We need your support at a time when the need to engage individuals with learning disabilities is greater than ever.

You can read our Case for Support to find out more details about why our work is so vital.
