Coffee & Cake

Organise your own Coffee & Cake Morning to help raise awareness & funds for Caring Matters Now.

Our Coffee & Cake fundraiser is a flexible event which can be used both as a fun and easy way to help raise vital funds for Caring Matters Now as well as a great way to talk about CMN with your friends and family.

Living with CMN or parenting a child with CMN can feel quite overwhelming and stir up a whole range of emotions such as fear, anxiety, and worry. As a charity, we want to support our members to reach their full potential and to help them to develop key social and emotional life skills. Often this involves exploring how best to raise awareness within your community, whether that’s amongst peers in the classroom or colleagues in the workplace. With this support, our members can thrive in day-to-day life, educate others about visible differences, build self-esteem, reduce feelings of isolation, and prevent bullying or discrimination.

Most often, our members come to us for support around a time of transition- moving schools or workplace, joining a new sports club, or meeting new people and forming close relationships.

Maybe you’re wondering, ‘How do I tell my neighbours?’ ‘What can I do at the football club to educate other families?’ ‘How can I avoid the same conversations over and over again?’

Our Coffee & Cake fundraising pack is a fantastic tool for our members, providing an ideal platform to raise awareness of CMN within your community. Not only does our Coffee and Cake morning raise vital funds for Caring Matters Now to further our work in providing support for our members, raising awareness and funding research for CMN, it also supports our members to talk confidently about CMN, building an educated and supportive network around them. Our Support Pathway Practitioner is here to support you as you explore ways to put your experience into words.

Get creative and make this event work for you:

  • The Coffee & Cake morning is that this doesn’t have to be run by you- why not gift a FREE pack to your school, workplace or sports club and ask the staff team to host a Coffee and Cake morning on your behalf? 
  • Whilst eating cake and drinking coffee, hold a raffle to raise a little more, maybe an activity for the kids, name the teddy, guess the number of sweets in the jar. The list of ideas to make the event as big as you wish is endless.
  • You can organise your coffee and cake morning at a date and time that suits you, at home, school, or your place of work, bringing together your family, friends, neighbours, and colleagues.

To help make your event a huge success we would love to send you a FREE resource pack. Just simply click below to register your event and then follow the instructions to set up your own fundraising page. If you need any help, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing
