Together! is more than our name; it is also our ethos. To date we have worked with over 30 partners, including commercial and business organisations and educational institutions as well as public sector, arts and disability groups. We have also had the generous support of some wonderful disabled artists.
We want to continue to work together with as many individuals and organisations as possible to achieve our aim of making Newham an international centre of excellence for Disability Arts, Culture and Human Rights as part of the Legacy. We also want to promote inclusion and independent living, and to support the health and wellbeing of disabled people and carers through improved self-esteem and self-confidence and wider social networking. Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have recognised our “outstanding services in improving the health and wellbeing of local people” with the award of Community of Health.
- We welcome partners who are able to provide venues, facilities, resources, fundraising support, sponsorship or other funding, or who can help us to publicise our events. We are currently seeking sponsors for our Clubs, which each require £500-£1000 p.a. to cover the running costs.
- We also welcome partners who want to organise events jointly with us, or who want to organise their own events and market these as part of the Together! festival.
- Volunteers play a crucial role in Together!’s activities and we always welcome new volunteers including corporate volunteers. Volunteers can be disabled or non-disabled, and any age over school-leaving age. If you are an individual who would like to volunteer, see the separate details here.
- We also welcome enquires from Disabled People’s Organisations, other disability groups, disabled-led businesses and any other organisations who wish to display information or run stalls at Together! events.
