    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The Myriad Centre is an independent, Worcester based charity supporting and enhancing the lives of young people with profound and multiple disabilities, from across Worcestershire, as they make the transition into adulthood.

    Sometime during the night of Monday 6th February 2017 one of our minibuses was stolen from outside our Centre.

    Our fleet of 5 minibuses are central to the services that we provide, going out each day to all four corners of the county and bringing those, who already face considerable barriers to their daily lives, in to the Centre and taking them home again.

    During the day these buses also provide a vital link in getting everyone out in to the community and doing all of the ordinary things in all of the ordinary places that we all take for granted, transport to essential physical therapies such as hydrotherapy, rebound and swimming as well as activities such as sports, trips out etc.

    From the morning of Tuesday 7th February our young people, who are unable to just hop on a bus, take a train or call a taxi, were faced with yet another barrier of having a highly specialised and equipped vehicle taken from them.

    The Myriad Centre now also faces a challenge of its own. Replacing such an important vehicle.

    When we include replacing all of the equipment that was on board, 6 sets of wheelchair clamps at £500 each for example, we are looking at a potential cost of £12,000 to £15,000 to bring our small fleet up to full strength and back delivering its vital service.

    For a small, independent charity such as the Myriad Centre this represents a considerable cost and, without your kind support, the only place that this money can come from is front line services, dealing a second blow, through no fault of their own, to people who are already among the most marginalised in our society.
