If you’re a business, you could sponsor a project, or even a specific aspect of a project. For example, Legal & General sponsored umbrellas for one of our outdoor shows, keeping vulnerable audiences & performers dry. Your organisation could be responsible for making one of our projects happen!

After you have made provision for your loved ones, leaving a gift in your will can be a fantastic way of continuing to support the work we do, no matter how much you are able to leave. In this way, you’ll be investing in the future of Taking Flight, nurturing emerging Deaf & disabled creatives & leaving a lasting mark for generations to come. You might consider bequeathing a specific sum or perhaps a percentage of your estate. As a registered charity funded purely on a project by project basis, even £250 or a 1% bequest can make a huge difference.
If you would like to discuss supporting us in any way, please do get in touch.
