Your support makes all the difference
The government pays us fees to care for disabled people, both in our services and in their own homes. But this money only pays for the basics.
Our incredible supporters fundraise and donate so that we can go the extra mile. Some raise money by running marathons, leaving gifts in their wills, or pledging regular donations.
Others give their time, working with disabled people in our services. Many companies and institutions help to fund projects like our Can Do volunteering programme for disabled people.
The extra money pays for disabled people to do the everyday things that so many of us take for granted, like taking up new hobbies or enjoying their local communities — things that make life fulfilling.
