Fundraising Your Way


Skylarks has been proudly supporting children with additional needs and disabilities, and their families, since since 2006. We have grown from supoprting 50 children each year to over 1500. We are strongly independent, and do not receive any money from the government, which enables us to truly represent the families we support, giving us the vital flexibiity to adapt and meet their needs.

We do this by solely relying on donations, grants and fundraising, so every pound raised really does make a big difference.  

Your fundraising is vital for helping children with additional needs to thrive. By raising money for us, you can help hundreds of children and their families get the support they so desperately need. Together, we can help more children than ever.

FUNDRAISE and help support children with additional needs

There are plenty of ready-made events and challenges for you to take part in around the UK, such as runs, walks, cycles and swims, have a look at our events page, for some ideas. If these aren't for you, why not fundraise your own way, doing what you like and having fun along the way! 

A question we are often asked is ‘What can we do to raise money?’ The answer to this is in the name, fundraising should be FUN! You will get the most out of fundraising and raise more money when you’re doing something you enjoy.

Maybe you’re a keen golfer, baker, music lover, dancer, singer, knitter, sewer, crocheter, painter, sculptor, walker, runner, football player, rugby player or cyclist. Whatever your passion, there’s always a way to turn it into a fundraiser.

There are so many ways you can raise money to suport support children with additinal needs and their families. You're probably brimming with ideas, but if you're struggling for inspiration, why not take a look at our A-Z of Fundraising Ideas.
