We are raising money to install a disabled access toilet and improve our access ramp to the building

New stretch target

The overall estimated cost for all the renovations we'd like to do is around £200,000. The estimated cost of installing a better quality ramp to the building and creating a disabled access toilet is £2,000. Accessibility is a priority, but we would really love to modernise the whole building so that girls and young women in the area can really benefit from the actitivies we have to offer.

Our Division Headquarters in Maricas Avenue has been our home for the past 60 years, but is in desperate need of modernising to ensure it stays safe and suitable for the girls and Leaders using it. The building is maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers, Friends of Guiding in Wealdstone, but we now need to do more extensive renovations.

 We have planning permission in place to extend the building, which will give us enough space to create an accessible toilet and wash facilities, revamp the general toilet facilities, and install a brand-new kitchen, and install a ramp for accessibility to the building.

Having better disabled access to the building and suitable facilities is important to us, as we can then invite other community groups to use our building, which is a much under used gem in the middle of a busy London suburb.
