How to get involved

Your help and support means that we can really make a difference.

There are so many ways you can help us to help people living with autism, learning disabilities, brain injury and physical disabilities.

You can raise money for us either by supporting our appeals or through a fundraising event!

ConnectAbility

#ConnectAbility is a three year fundraising appeal to raise £250,000 for life-changing assistive technology that will help disabled people live more independently. Many of the people we support have had their lives transformed thanks to assistive technology. They are now able to live more independent lives and maximise their ability to make choices and communicate with others. The next stage of the appeal sees the opening of our new #ConnectAbility 'Hubs'. These facilities will be available to disabled people so they can try out new assistive technology, ask questions and learn how it all works.
