This page is dedicated to Corporate supporters who have developed a relationship with The Disabilities Trust. This vital exchange means that service users have been able to enjoy trips out, use assistive technology and have had areas of their service rejuvenated thanks to the kindness of the companies below. From volunteering days to donations, charity of the year and sponsorship opportunities, each corporate supporter has been able to assist service users like Christopher (who has lost 10 stone since being at Shinewater Court, Eastbourne) in the support they need day to day. Thank you.

If you are a company that would like to get in touch about how you could become a Corporate Partner please contact Hayley.wicker-bradbury@thedtgroup.org or call 01444 237286
