Get involved

You have the power to ensure that adults with additional needs get the care and support that they need to live their best lives, their way.

Our volunteers help Ategi in many ways - from helping in our office, joining our board of trustees, to joining as a peer-support volunteer.   

Could you do some fundraising for Ategi?

Wil, an Ategi support worker, ran 21.1km in the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise money for Ategi and the people we support!

“Ategi is all about caring for people. I really enjoy this work, Ategi has grown on me. I like the idea of an Ategi Wellbeing Fund that will provide direct benefits for the people we support when they are up against so many challenges to move their lives forward.”

Why we need your support

Every year Ategi helps over 300 adults who need specific, individually tailored support, to enable them to live their lives as independently as possible. We work to continuously improve our services and trial new ways of doing things. Social care budgets are tight, and spending has to be prioritised.

100% of your donation will pay to help people with support needs to live a full and independent life.

Your donation will help people like Trevor

Before being supported by Ategi, Trevor had no sense of self-worth, no identity in his community, his appearance was unkempt and he was not welcome in most places. He lived alone and had no visitors. He would refuse his medication for epilepsy attacks and was labelled as aggressive by the Police, Social Services and the Ambulance Service. Ategi began supporting Trevor in 2006 and worked with him to gain his confidence and trust. He began to develop a sense of self-worth and he is now proud of who he is.

How do our services benefit people?

At Ategi, we support each person as an individual, enabling them to develop their skills and confidence and increase their independence. People may need support for lots of different reasons, and the type of support they need will vary from person to person.
