    February is love halow month!

    The Love halow Campaign will be running throughout February 2017 to help raise awareness and learn more about halow. This is a chance for the public, schools and businesses to learn more about the young people with learning disabilities we support in the local community of Guildford and across Surrey. 

    Overall, halow aims to ensure that every person with a learning disability has the same life choices and chances as any other person. The young people we work with want the opportunity to:Build relationships, become part of the community, find meaningful employment, have a home of their own

    With your help, last year we managed to achieve the following, Celebrated halow’s 10th birthday, expanded our Building Futures programme, staffed two new Supported Living Houses, launched our Disability Works campaign to encourage employers to help get young people into paid work. To have achieved all of this, against a backdrop of austerity, severe funding cuts in social care, in particular for people with a learning disability in Surrey, has been challenging for halow but very definitely something to be proud of and celebrate.
    Our young people inspire us every day and your support for halow’s work is more important now that it has ever been. This month we will be highlighting our work to our local community and raising funds through our heart shaped lapel pins.
    All money raised from the Love halow Campaign will go directly to supporting our young people. 

    How can I get involved?

    1.  Sell a box of our badges:
    If you work in an office, school or local business then get involved by selling a box of our lapel pin badges for £1.  Alternatively, why not have a bake off by making heart shaped biscuits and cakes.  They are full colour and only £1.00 per badge. If you would like a box please email fundraising@halowproject.org.uk or call 01483 447960

     

    2.  Get Social:
    Join in online via TwitterFacebook or email. Just send us a reason why you love halow preferably with a great picture like the ones  in the video below. Feel free to download a Love halow Campaign sign by clicking here. Then print it out, fill it in and send us a picture of you holding it.

    If you are using social media, support us by changing your profile picture with a twibbon and  please remember to include #lovehalow and @halowproject so we can be sure to share your involvement.
