Why Support DanceSyndrome?
Donations enable us to help people to improve their confidence, communication skills and their health, as well as providing a vital opportunity for having fun, being happy and building friendships and careers for people often excluded from mainstream dance.
The following video explains how your support can make a big difference to DanceSyndrome.
Can you bake, run, walk, dance, swim or shave your head?
Then you can help DanceSyndrome raise money in our annual fundraising appeal!
On this page you can find information about why our appeal is important, learn how to organise your own events, see existing events, read about the progress of our appeal and how to donate.
Can You Help Us?
All our dance activity is led and informed by people with learning disabilities. DanceSyndrome activities give people confidence, respect, value and self-belief through our philosophy of ‘anything is possible even though you have a learning disability’.
If you would like to help us to reach our fundraising target but aren’t sure where to start, then our fundraising pack can help! It has lots of ideas of ways to raise money and includes information on how to promote your fundraising event, including poster templates and a printable sponsorship form.
If your business would like to support us, please contact us to find out how we can work together to benefit your organisation.
