Every donation really does help

All donations will help us to continue to deliver specialised services for individuals who are marginalised or disadvantaged within our communities.  

Donations can help support an existing programme of work or help develop a new initiative to support individuals, families and communities.

Some recent examples of where donations have supported our work inlcude:

  • BHA’s Crisis Fund – this fund is provided 100% by voluntary donations and helps support people living with HIV who are in financial crisis
  • Service user summer activities – from our fundraising, we were able to plan a trip to Scarborough for our service users and their children.  The day enabled service users to relax and enjoy a day at the beach with their children and socialise with others in similar situations.

Drawing from a wealth of experience we have learnt that people volunteer for various reasons, from simply wanting a chance to try something new or perhaps as a route to employment whilst gaining new skills, knowledge and experience. There are enormous opportunities in volunteering; we aim to develop the skills of our volunteers by giving them training and experience. We have many employees, including managers, who started their BHA careers as volunteers and developed within this progressive environment.

You may choose to volunteer to give something back to an organisation that has impacted on your life or that of someone you know. It may be that you need a chance to re-build confidence after some time out of work. Whatever your reasons are, we offer our volunteers the opportunity to work within a diverse and friendly organisation, meet new people, make new friends, and get to know your community. At BHA, we endeavour to find a role that suits your needs and lifestyle, building on your strengths whilst identifying opportunities for further development.
