Can you help

Artability Ltd is a day provisions for adults with disabilities. We opened nearly ten years ago starting with the support of Southend Mencap, and we have had a successful journey and very quickly became independent and self-sufficient. Our service user’s talents, skills and self-esteem have grown over the years. With each year new people are wanting to join us. Artability has become a successful resource for our community and we engage in many community events, plus our service users have won many awards for their art work and window displays .

Last year our property owner decided to sell the premise due to ill health, this was indeed a worrying time, however the bank viewed Artability as a successful business and agreed to help us secure the building and Arability’s future.

Artability supports 30 service users .We have 9 part-time staff paid and volunteers. We also have work experience students from the local colleges each week .

To make Artability more comfortable for all its service users, we require some modifications to the buildings.

New windows and a larger dining room would enable us to sit together during lunch and be more sociable. Due to the high cost of securing the building we are now short of funds.

At present our dining room is on the first floor and is now too small.

Having a ground floor dining room, communal area will also help service users who have mobility problems now and in the future.

We require a building to hold between 20/25 people per day with fittings for a kitchenette and an additional toilet,

Our Target is to raise £30,900. With the help of everyone's donations we can support more clients who cannot manage the stairs and to give them a better quality of day care

Please give as much as you can to help.

Thank you.
