Fancy Dress Disco in Inverness
Participatory funding is an innovative initiative pioneered by The Richmond Fellowship Scotland as a way of handing over funding to the People We Support for them to shape, design and control projects that achieve what they want. Our only requirement is that the money is spent on having some fun!
In Inverness, they chose to have a fancy dress disco which was organised with the kind help of Senior Support Worker Debbie Lafferty.
Around 60 of the People We Support attended this disco. For many of them, this was their first ever visit to a nightclub and everyone thoroughly enjoyed dancing the night away.
There was also a buffet which gave people the chance to catch up with their old friends and make new ones as well. Everyone also got to keep their outfits and take them home for another time.
It was such a hit that they are now planning further events for Halloween, Christmas and Easter!
