Speakup would like to thank all its funders, commissioners, our friends, sponsors and our patrons Matthew and Charley Wolfenden.

The Big Appeal

Without you all, Speakup would not be able to continue its unique, amazing and life changing work, which makes a real and lasting difference for people with learning disabilities and autistic people.


With your support, we can continue to work in the unique way we do and continue employing people with learning disabilities and autistic people. All of this work needs our dedicated and stable team of inclusion workers to support co-production across all our projects.


Each year we do several local funding events, which you are most welcome to attend. This year we are holding a Summer Ball, a Race Night, a Beer Tasting Night and a Pie and Pea night.

These are ticketed events. Contact phil@speakup.org.uk to purchase tickets

We also need sponsors to support our race night. If you or your work or

organisation would like to sponsor a race, please get in touch with adrian@speakup.org.uk

All this fundraising is good fun and supports our friendship circles, but it only raises a few thousand pounds and we need far more to sustain the organisation annually.. Please consider donating at other times or become one of our fabulous sponsors. 

We need sponsors for our work and to support our race night. If you, your work or organisation would like to sponsor Speakup (or a race on race night) please get in touch with adrian@speakup.org.uk.


Our Big Annual Appeal begins in November 2019 and finishes on the 31st of January 2020.

Please do give generously to support our vital work, we always struggle with core costs and your contribution will make an amazing difference and help sustain and grow our employment of people with learning disabilities.


A donation from you will help our Inclusion workers support people to develop understanding, decision making and choices, for people who need more time to understand information and issues which affect their lives.

Thank you so much.
