Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Please take a moment to read the information below as to why we're raising money πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°for this excellent and much needed charity.

Swindon Advocacy Movement (SAM) offers various advocacy services to adults and children who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives.Β 

One of SAM's most successful projects was Buddies. Buddies was a social inclusion project supporting individuals and groups of people with a Learning Difficulty or Autism to be more active in their community by becoming more independent. Simple, life enhancing activities like learning the skills to arrange to meet up with a friend πŸ‘«and go for a coffee β˜•οΈ.

The funding for Buddies has now come to an end but it has been such a huge success πŸ† that we are keen for it to continue.Β 

Action For Independence (AFI) is the new, improved Buddies and that is where we need your help to fund raise πŸ’° πŸ’° πŸ’°!!!

Individuals who have increased their independence through Buddies have agreed to become our 'independence champions' πŸ₯‡. This peer to peer support is the central theme to AFI, these individuals will lead on various activities like cinema club πŸŽ₯ & bowling club 🎳.

Your money will help SAM staff to support the "independence champions" and to reach many more people in Swindon.

Any donations will be very gratefully received whether Β£1 or Β£10. Every single penny counts πŸ€‘πŸ€‘ Thank you so very much!😊😊😊
