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.

Langdon is a leading charity that empowers over 100 Jewish adults with learning disabilities to live independently in their local community.

We're Mind, the mental health charity. We believe that no one should have to cope with a mental health problem alone. In any given year, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem. But it's estimated that only 25% of people with mental health problems receive support each year. Too many people still don't have what they need and deserve to stay well. And that's not good enough.
The Sunnybank Trust, based in NE Surrey, aims to enrich the lives of people with learning disabilities in the local community through inclusion, friendship and justice. Services improve the quality of life for young people and adults with learning disabilities above and beyond what they would usually experience.
