Elissa is running the Virgin London Marathon to raise funds for our projects. She’s training hard – and here is the evidence. If you would like to support Elissa, you can do so by visiting her fundraising page.
Volunteers – All our volunteers are essential contributors to the organisation. We rely on them to make things happen and work in the ways that meet our values. We always look for new people that can build on what we achieve. More information can be found on our volunteering page
Fundraising – At People Matters we get no core grant from our local authority unlike many third sector organisations. All our income comes from trading activities, grants we apply for and now fundraising activities. To find out how you can support us look at our fundraising page
– We are a member led organisation. Our members sometimes experience discrimination and our role is to offer opportunities that enable them to be more independent and enjoy life in the same ways, and in the same places, as anybody else. Want to find out more about how people with learning disabilities want to be treated? Try the Get Me? Charter which we support. The Charter gives some clear and simple points about how people with learning disabilities want to be treated.
