  • Need

    Need

    Daybreak would like to be fully independent of statutory funding to enable us to continue to offer Dementia Day Clubs & respite care. We currently run three clubs in Oxford. We need to raise awareness of Daybreak within the communities of Oxfordshire to enable people to use our much needed and highly valued service as well as attract volunteers and raise much needed funds.

    Solution

    We have employed a Fundraising Manager to reach out to the communities of Oxfordshire engaging with local groups and organisations to raise awareness and funds.
    We also would like to update our website with more specific information on Daybreak Clubs as well as introducing different fundraising streams.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Run a series of Open Days to enable members of the community to find out more about what we do.

    Activities

    » Success will be recruiting at least 5 volunteers for each of our 3 clubs by involving colleges/universities as well as increasing our revenue by 50%

    Recruit at least 5 volunteers for each of our 3 dementia clubs by involving at least different sectors of the Community, as well as increasing our fundraising revenue by 50%.


  • Impact

    Impact

    The project will raise awareness of Daybreak Dementia Clubs , as well as highlight the plight of those who love and look after someone with dementia who can often feel just as frightened, vulnerable and uncertain. Daybreak will be the first port of call for anyone who has had a dementia diagnosis.
    We would also like to open more Daybreak Clubs across Oxfordshire as we know there is a great need for our service.We will monitor the number of our members with an expected increase of 10%

    Risk

    Reporting

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    Daybreak Clubs have been successfully established in Oxford for 20 years . We are well known by the Social Services and memory clinic, however, we need to raise our profile to the Communities within Oxfordshire as Daybreak clubs are available to anyone in Oxfordshire if they are able to make there own way there.
