Fledgling’s current goal is to raise a minimum of £35,000 for a number of reasons.
First and foremost, we would like to establish ourselves as a functioning large based charity with in the UK (still operating globally). Although Fledgling is an online global organization, it is important to institute a strong foundation here before expanding overseas. This will afford us the resource in maintaining our long-term plan to open Fledgling nests all over the world.
Further more, and our priority, since Fledgling does support those who are struggling with mental health ,we feel that it is essential to open an outreach wing with trained and certified counsellors for anyone who is in crisis and requires a thoughtful ear.With current massive UK cutbacks in the Mental Health Services, we realise how imperative it is that there is somewhere that people can come to with easy access, feel part of a community and be heard and not feel alone.
Mental Health struggles in all their forms are as crippling as any physical illness and also takes lives (as many of our Fledgling Volunteers & community know) We want to help people through their struggles and show them their is a way back from the abyss from those that understand and have stared into it too.
In addition, we would like to provide an official funtioning website website with that will house all of the services that Fledgling offers, upcoming news and events and an official online contact where people can visit and get a taste of who we are.
We would also like to gain a foot in the door and become a small part of a publishing house,(with our own small publishing house, in order to spread the word of the Fledgling bird, i.e make a currently very invisible community heard , raise awareness and encourage empathy and exposure.
Our volunteer managers are completely invested with their work at Fledgling, they provide an essential service to our members we would like the ability to offer the Fledgling core seniority/Managers a small salary for all of the work they do for the greater good for humanity.
The value of a charity such as Fledgling is immense, we offer a very unique and relevant service through out pay-it-forward ethos a unique method of giving back on so many levels. We also feel that we offer in terms of a service and also a community is unique. Also at a time when mental health services funded by the government are being restricted , we see on a daily basis just how important it is for people who are really struggling to have access to support easily and as much as possible. We would most genuinely appreciate the funding to permit Fledgling to establish the tools to consistently aiding these beautiful human beings who are consistently fighting for themselves through their cathARTic freedom.
Our volunteers know first hand how our members feel, as the majority of us have struggled or still are struggling with the same issues our members are, thankfully, there is never a lack of empathy at Fledgling.
