ICP Support is a small charity that achieves a lot – we have a research-based website, a dedicated Support and Information Line, an active Facebook page and groups, online Zoom meetings for women and a generic charity leaflet.
Because we are small, we aren’t cash-rich, but we need to raise enough money to achieve our aims. Among other things, we need to maintain the Support and Information Hub (currently costs £1,200 a month), we need money to print our leaflets (a print run for 1,000 of our generic leaflets costs around £75), and we want to be able to support research (we donate a minimum of 10% or our bank balance at the end of every financial year to research). We need to do all these things if we are to ensure that all ICP babies are born safely.
That’s why we need you to help us. If you are already one of our active supporters or a regular donor – thank you! If you are considering donating to us or taking part in a fundraising activity, have a look at the ways in which you can do this.
Some of our traditional fundraising activities aren’t possible during the coronavirus outbreak, but our work to help women with ICP and their families goes on. You raised over £26,000 during the first six months of the pandemic, covering our immediate shortfall. But as the pandemic goes on, we’re continuing to look at creative ways to raise funds. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter (@icpsupport) and Instagram (@icpsupport) as we announce new and exciting ways to raise funds!
We guarantee that your money will help. We know that every month over 5,000–6,000 people look at our website, at least 100 people contact us via the Support and Information Hub (which includes Facebook groups), and at least five women sign up to take part in research because of us.
