At the Open Doors Project we deliver outdoor activity sessions to children and young people with learning disabilities. We address the issue of lack of provision for disabled children by providing free-of-charge activities including nature rambles, gardening, sensory exploration, den building, pond dipping, and engagement with wildlife for children and young people with learning disabilities and a range of special needs. We want to ensure these children and young people can experience the same opportunities as their peers in mainstream schools, and allow them to develop crucial social, communication, and behaviour management skills which will support them now and later in life.
Our projects rely on minibus transportation to take place, which adds an additional expense to every session. We are fundraising to be able to purchase or long-term lease a minibus which will allow greater flexibility in delivering sessions, and which will allow us to spend more money on activities for the children (rather than minibus rental!).
We are looking to purchase or long-term lease a minibus, in order to provide opportunities to a wider range of our young people. All money raised will be spent on the purchase and running of this minibus.
