Can you help us with our Crowd Funding fundraiser?
We have recently launched our first Crowd Funding fundraiser on 'Go Get Funding' (http://gogetfunding.com/project/hs4b-cic).
We are trying to raise £150,000 to re-launch the organisation. From our past experience during the 'test trading' phase, the only thing that stopped us from what we aimed for was the finance to set things up properly. As we have set up the necessary work behind the scenes, it is now time to start the fundraising to get this organisation off of the ground.
The funding we require has been worked out to cover us for the 1st year and includes the following:
- Wages for 6 x core staff
- Premises (Fundraising Shop / Recycling Centre)
- Delivery Van
- Insurance's, Licences and Policies
- Stationary & Sundries
- Advertising & Marketing
- Shop Signage
- Capital Costs / Buffer
Our belief is that with the right funding and support, we can seriously make a difference to the immediate community. With the right funding and support, not only will we be able to setup a new fundraising shop, but it can reach a certain point where it is self sustaining. The existence of the fundraising shop and recycling centre will be able to generate sustainable voluntary and employment opportunities.
The core service of HS4B CIC is to still help individuals in financial hardship, but due to our previous experience, the lack of funding is the only thing that stops us. We estimate that for us to be in a self-sustaining position, it will take us between 2 to 3 years. After which, we will then be able to support clients and individuals with the services that they require.

If you can help us in anyway, either by supporting our cause financially, or by even sharing this blog post, it will be seriously appreciated. Don't forget to connect with our Facebook page and Twitter if you haven't done so already!

Supporters are now helping to
HS4B has been completely ignored, unfunded and at times persecuted for over four years. If you like 98% of the people we speak to think that this is four years too long, then please sign our petition to show that we have the support of the public in asking for the support of the local authorities.
