Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. We have been supporting families for over 40 years, and provide grants for a wide range of items, such as washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets, furniture, outdoor play equipment, clothing and computers.
Action on Hearing Loss, formerly RNID (Royal National Institute for Deaf People), is the only charity in the UK that is dedicated to funding research to find a cure for hearing loss and support people who desperately need our help today. Hearing loss affects over 11 million people in the UK - one in six of the population.
At the BDA, we are committed to providing a better and brighter future for deaf children, young people, adults and older people, and it is because of the generosity of our supporters that we have been able to make a real difference to so many. Gifts in Wills provide a vital source of funding for the BDA and offer our supporters a simple yet meaningful way to leave a lasting gift to future generations of deaf people and their families.
The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is an independent charity which supports thousands of people who experience tinnitus and advises medical professionals from across the world. The BTA is the primary source of support and information for people with tinnitus in the UK, facilitating an improved quality of life.
DDP supports disabled and very poor marginalised people in countries in Africa and Asia through projects implemented by our local partners in Ethiopia, India, Mozambique, Nepal and Burundi. Together we aim to achieve equality of opportunity and inclusion in education, health and livelihoods for people with disabilities and also for people whose disabilities are not immediately visible, such as mental illness and hearing disabilities; and vulnerable people, marginalised communities of former refugees, and tribal communities.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People trains dogs to help deaf people leave loneliness behind and reconnect with life. Not only are these amazing dogs trained to alert deaf children and adults to important and life-saving sounds, such as the smoke alarm, they also provide love, companionship and emotional support.
There are more than 45,000 deaf children in the UK and nearly all are born into families with no first-hand experience of deafness. At the toughest of times, the National Deaf Children’s Society is the first place many parents turn to for emotional support and information. We help them make choices that will give their children the same opportunities as any other child, and challenge the barriers they face simply because they are deaf.
Please help us to continue to provide accessible services for Deaf people. Your gift or legacy will help us create a better future for Deaf people. Thank you for your generosity.
Sense is a national disability charity that supports people who are deafblind or with complex disabilities to communicate and experience the world. Our mission today remains the same as in 1955 when two mums came together to fight for a better life for their children who were deafblind as a result of rubella.
Sense International is one of the leading organisations that supports children and adults with deafblindness across a range of often resource poor countries: Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Peru and Romania. Children who are deafblind in these countries desperately need to receive education and healthcare. Without this, many will lead short, lonely lives.
