We want to get everyone involved in dance and movement, regardless of age, fitness or physical ability. Our fun, innovative classes tackle obesity, grow participants’ confidence and resilience and positively impact health and well-being. Art, dance, nutrition, yoga and special themed workshops are all available including ventures and performance in the community.
We offer good value, quality and creative classes for both mainstream and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) participants. Health issues that we accommodate include Alzheimers, Parkinsons, mental health issues, cerebral palsy, hearing loss, sight problems and disabled clients.
Opportunities for people of all ages from disadvantaged backgrounds include performing options for talented youngsters, plus volunteering and internships for those who want to learn and get involved in the delivery of our classes.
We work with local donors, partners and philanthropists to deliver not for profit initiatives in the community including special needs classes. We provide free workshops for county council holiday schemes, and we seek to reach more clients with disabilities as the number of our partnerships grows.
Now we invite you to share our goals. By donating you will help us to reach more young people and those with disabilities who will benefit from the unique Synergy Dance Outreach formula, enable us to keep prices affordable, and contribute to a lasting legacy of good value dance, yoga, fitness and performance in the community. Join our innovation and help us to promote and sustain healthy lifestyles and activities from tots to teens to adults.
Every contribution helps us to make a difference in fighting obesity, getting children, teens and adults active and helping to establish more special needs and disability classes.
Synergy Dance Outreach is reliant on donations from individuals, companies, trusts and organisations. Join us on our mission to promote healthy lifestyles and inclusive dance, fitness and yoga for all. Our new nutrition program will also help to promote both healthy eating and exercise.
Please help us to action all our plans for complete and open access to dance, fitness and yoga activities regardless of financial circumstances or physical disabilities. We want to reach all children or adults who want to move and enjoy the benefits of dance and fitness in the community. Many projects simply won’t go ahead without the funding to deliver.

Gift Aid Explained
HMRC operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated. So if you donated £100 to Synergy Dance Outreach, you could actually be giving us £125. Giving under Gift Aid means that so much more money can be raised at no extra cost to our donors.
Gift Aid – the facts
- For individuals, the Gift Aid rules require the completion of a We need to add a Gift aid form. This provides us with the minimum information required for us to be able to claim Gift Aid on a donation.
- Gift Aid can be claimed on individual and sponsorship donations that are made to Synergy Dance Outreach
- Gift Aid applies only to ‘gifts’. That means we can’t use Gift Aid to boost fundraising totals on activities where people have been charged an entry fee, made a purchase or have entered a competition. This also extends to activities where the donor can’t be traced (such as giving to collections).
- To ensure that the Gift Aid claim is valid, meaning we can claim the money back, it’s vitally important that all the information asked for on the We need to add a gift aid form
Higher Rate Tax Payers and Gift Aid
If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax you pay and the basic rate of tax (currently 20 per cent) on the total ‘gross’ value of your donation. If you want to receive the additional tax relief you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code. The SA Donate Scheme ceased from April 2012. This means that donors can no longer send a tax refund to a charity straight from their tax return. Donors can still donate their tax refund to any charity themselves and claim Gift Aid if the qualifying conditions have been met.
