We are delighted to share our 2020-2021 Impact Report and Annual Accounts with our Flamingo Chicks Flock.
Despite the challenges posed by Covid-19, 2020 saw Flamingo Chicks make a step-change in our reach, harnessing the power of technology to work with new special schools, hospices and community groups across the length and breadth of the country. Our growth in both organisational income and programmes reach, in spite of the year’s challenges, has been particularly encouraging for our first year as a registered charity.
We are incredibly proud that over the last year, our network of special schools, community groups and hospices grew nationwide with over 2,500 children dancing with us in-person, on Zoom with their school or club or at home. Even more impressive were our first-of-their-kind virtual classes: launched in response to the first national lockdown, these pioneering classes have clocked over 250,000 views, a watch time equivalent of 45 online classes per day!
The last year has seen demand for our services like never before and we are determined to do all that we can to respond to this need. We are also extremely grateful for all the support we have received this year. With the flexibility of funders, generosity of supporters, the incredible input from volunteers across a plethora of roles, as well as the invaluable strategic input from our Trustees and the immense hard work of our team (with many juggling home-schooling too!), we have been able to create real impact and momentum. Thank you!
