Our Work

We believe that every person deserves the opportunity to lead a life of dignity, purpose, and independence, regardless of their circumstances. We work towards creating a world where disabled and disadvantaged individuals can thrive and live fulfilling lives, both in the UK and overseas.

Projects

Beyond Barriers

Building Bonds Between Abilities

We facilitate learning between children and young adults with learning disabilities who may not have the opportunity to interact or care for children, leading to lifelong positive relationships and long-lasting social inclusions.

Project

Sierra Leone

Access to clean water poses a significant challenge throughout Sierra Leone, with the majority of families relying on communal taps, neighborhood wells, or local springs for their water supply. According to the UNICEF, Sierra Leone Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey, less than 1% of the country’s 8 million residents have access to piped water within their homes.

Improving access to clean water could lead to a decrease in the transmission of communicable diseases by reducing interactions with contaminated sources.

Additionally, Sierra Leone grapples with one of the world’s highest child mortality rates, which greatly affects the overall lifespan of its population. This issue arises from various factors, including inadequate access to food, insufficient education on hygiene practices, a severe shortage of medical facilities and trained personnel, and limited availability of clean water sources.

Fundraising

Daffodil Principle

Appeal

Inspired by the story of ‘The Daffodil Principle’ where a single act of planting one bulb led to a breathtaking display of beauty, we aim to create a ripple effect of positive change through our fundraising efforts.

The Daffodil Principle Appeal is a fundraising initiative dedicated to supporting the disabled and the disadvantaged. Just like the daffodil bulb that multiplies and spreads beauty, every donation to our appeal helps us multiply the impact and bring hope to those in need.

Mindfulness

Appeal

We believe that a mindful moment in time can bring about the change necessary that improves one’s entire day! Our Mindfulness Appeal seeks to improve on our abilities to be aware of our inner self and our surroundings. Take a moment from your day to do some mindfulness exercises that improves the mind and helps us raise funds.

Can you do this for a whole season? Challenge yourself weekly and see how many of these you can accomplish within three months.

Here are some examples to get you started:

Ongoing Objectives

Our ongoing objectives are to:

 

  • Break through the stereotypes of surrounding disability especially learning disability
  • Provide facilities that enhance the lives of the disabled/disadvantaged
  • Support and collaborate with other agencies/organisations to facilitate the delivery of our charitable objects
  • Fundraise to support our work

Education, Training and Employment

We give small grants to university student groups promoting inclusion in further education and supporting those with learning difficulties within universities and colleges enabling them to meet their full potential and give back/contribute to society whether in paid or unpaid (volunteering) work. We also try to engage with UK employers to see beyond disability and more towards capability and potential. In other 'community settings we aim to promote tolerance and physical and mental health thereby facilitating a happier and more engaged society.
