Trusts and Foundations

We have long and established relationships with many charitable trusts and foundations across the UK. Without the generous support of these organisations we would be unable to make such a big difference to thousands of disabled people’s lives every year.

We would like to offer our warmest thanks to all those trusts and foundations that have supported and continue to support our work.
