Project information

We need a flat screen TV with DVD player

Currently we have a TV that has a DVD player within the TV. It is very convenient for training courses as we don't have to plug in a separate dvd player. However, the TV is one of the old fashioned ones and it takes up lots of room and is very heavy to move. We yearn for a thin one!

A couple of hours to set it up

  • Need


    The room we use for training is small so the large old fashioned TV takes up too much space. The room we use for training is our children's play therapy room so we have to move the TV out when we are not running training in there. It is SO heavy to move each time.


    Getting new equipment will resolve both the problems with space and with carrying equipment between rooms.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To buy a new TV with an internal DVD player


    » We are trying to fundraise but we are a small charity with few resources and it is hard to prioritise this when we already have a (very old) TV.

    What success will look like

    Success will be having a new TV that can play training DVDS

  • Impact


    We use a variety of training resources including DVDs when we train new bereavement counsellors for both our children's and adult client services. We are very committed to delivering high quality training and to developing the skills of our volunteers to their highest potential.


    We could buy the wrong TV but we will take advice so that doesn't happen!


    We will write to let them know when the TV is installed and will be happy to let them know how things are going with the bereavement service a year later
