The Down's Syndrome Association (DSA) was established in 1970 and is the only charity in the UK dealing with all aspects of Down’s syndrome.

There are 1.4 million people in the UK with a learning disability. Many people with a learning disability face inequality every day. They are ignored, denied education and refused jobs.

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.
Rescare was established in 1984 to promote the welfare of children and adults with learning disabilities and their families.
