Local disability organisations secure £10,000 to hold Wirral’s first ever Inclusion Festival -‘One Wirral’

Three local disability organisations, Wirral Mencap, Options for Supported Living and Wirral Evolutions have jointly secured £10,000 from the National Lottery to hold an inclusive community festival in Birkenhead Park this summer. ‘One Wirral’ will be a festival for the whole community, celebrating the diversity of Wirral and all the peninsula has to offer. It will bring together community groups from across the borough to showcase talents and activities such as dance, drama and music, and will encourage people to find a new hobby or join a new group in their area. The three disability organisations will work closely with partners to ensure that the festival reaches all parts of the community and is inclusive to all, regardless of age, gender, race, religion, cultural views, sexuality or disability. As well as being a great day out for the whole community, the event aims to highlight the achievements and positive contributions made to society by local people with a learning disability. Each organisation is recruiting a number of representatives who will be at the centre of planning, promotion and delivery.

Organisations in the voluntary, community and faith sector, whether large or small, young or old, thriving or only just surviving, all have certain things in common: Governance, Resources, Information, Projects and People. It can be hard to find the time to stand back and take stock of where your organisation is at and think about the things that could help it do better in the future. If you’ve got 10 minutes we’d like to offer you a helping hand! Click here to find out how.
