DIG DEEP - Make a difference Donate Fundraise Join our DIG DEEP 2018 fundraising campaign. With your help we can make a real difference to North East children and families who are experiencing life-changing challenges, including long term illness such as Dementia and Cancer. As little as £5 a month over a year, would help a family make the most of their income. Last year on average the families we helped gained £6,055 - real money which goes straight into the pockets of families. What is DIG DEEP 2018? DIG DEEP 2018 is a fundraising campaign launched by Citizens Advice Gateshead, which is an independent local charity that relies on the goodwill of grants and donations to help thousands of people every year with free advice and information at the time they need it most. Demand for our services is ever-increasing as funding becomes ever-harder to find. How will DIG DEEP 2018 make a difference? Through DIG DEEP 2018 you can help us to raise the funds we need to continue and expand our dedicated advice, information and support services. We need to help more families who, totally unexpectedly, have faced a life-changing challenge including long term illness such as Dementia and Cancer, leaving them with serious pressures and the need for free specialist advice and support to stabilise their lives. With your help we can DIG DEEP on behalf of families to get them the help they need to stabilise their lives, so they can get back to focusing on their loved ones. What is the DIG DEEP 2018 target? We're aiming to raise £50,000 to help more than 200 families to access social welfare advice and, from our experience, this should enable us to put over £1 million back into the pockets of North East families. *based on 2017 impact data How can you support DIG DEEP 2018 ?
