Fundraising

Cheap Stairlift on ebay <250bp
Keep in mind the service charge = fixed cost every 6 months
Measure the stairs and see how it can be installed
Question of finance if it is under 200bp it is gonna be manageable by crowdfunding
à 500bp fundraiser to cover the first year of maintenance

Status of charity pb to start searching for funding
Outreach project not affected by the current status
we have to get involved in the status change process i.e. know what’s going on
already be actively involved in outreach


Make templates of grant application or email models

Importance of keeping a clear track record of our progress

Step 1 Outreach Design the flyer and get them translated - Joey wants to do it
Layout and Data = 2 tasks
Get it approved at the general meeting
Print it out at DIY store
At same time we research the groups to whom we will give
Step 2 We give it to the shortlisted groups
Step 3 Follow up on if they are interested to collaborate

Make sure that there is always one ACCESS member in the general meeting to give updates on our work i.e. contribute to proactive and productive Sunday meetings

Hearing loops = cost assessment
Defo on the agenda for this year

Georgie investigates the deaf cinema concept i.e. having a sign language ‘subtitled’ movie once a week

Think about kid’s nights and the fire safety standard à keep on the agenda
