Birtenshaw is a registered charity and a registered company limited by guarantee. We operate as a social business meaning we charge fees to Local Authorities and other statutory bodies for the core services they commission from us.

However, as you may imagine the fees often cover just the minimum costs. In order to deliver the best possible service to brighten lives and build futures for children and young adults with special educational needs and disability we are grateful for additional support from people or businesses.

You could help us by:

  • Making a personal donation by visiting our JustGiving page
  • By donating monthly via a standing order or direct debit
  • Doing a sponsored activity
  • Hosting an event
  • Donating some time
  • Leaving a gift in your will
  • Become a ‘Friend of Birtenshaw’ (join a group of volunteers who help to raise awareness of the work of Birtenshaw)

Contact our Director of Income Generation  for more details of how you can get involved or visit the Friends of Birtenshaw page
