Last year, nearly 86,000 children were living with a critical condition. With this diagnosis, the simple pleasures of childhood and family life are replaced by worry, disruptive, gruelling treatment, financial worries and isolation.
Every critically ill child deserves to be granted a wish – our aim is to reach every child. Every one of them has a wish that is unique to them. We want to grant it for them.
Young people with a disability are less than half as likely to take part in sport at least once a week than young people without a disability. We create a range of opportunities for young people with a disability and those from deprived areas to engage in sport and recreational activities in their local communities. Our programmes support some of the most marginalised and at-risk young people in the UK. By creating these opportunities, we will have a lasting impact on the lives of young people with a disability and those living in areas of high levels of poverty, across the UK and beyond.
The Quest School was founded in September 2003 to provide a specialist school for pupils with autism. Children and young people with autism have specific and distinct needs, and they and their families deserve an education that is right for them. At Quest School, the pupils always come first, and we strive to help them reach their full potential, to maximise their opportunities to access and integrate into mainstream community life to the greatest possible extent, for the benefit of themselves and their families.
Taylor Made Dreams enables children with life limiting illnesses to achieve their dreams.
We will source and financially support therapeutic services alongside their difficult journey and help to leave lasting, precious memories for families to cherish when time together is all far too short. Our vision is that children with life limiting illnesses will have the opportunity to fulfil their dreams and that we may also provide their families with support from trained therapeutic professionals.
Most people are affected by cancer during their lives and many find this a traumatic and lonely experience. We aim to help and support anyone going through the emotional upset of cancer, from diagnosis onwards, be they patients, their partners, children, friends, or carers. We offer a safe, relaxing, friendly environment where mutual support and information can be found, without the pressure of appointments or time restraints. We offer a wide range of complementary therapies, such as reflexology, reiki, healing and massage; also nutritional advice, yoga and counselling. All are available free of charge.
The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is a non-formal education and learning framework operating in more than 130 countries and territories around the world, through which young people's achievements outside of academia are recognised and celebrated.
We are not limited by boundaries and are committed to making the Award available to 1% of the youth population by 2023, which is 7.9m young people. This represents a 600% growth on current participation numbers.
It is our long term ambition that every eligible young person aged 14 – 24 will have the opportunity to participate in the Award. Our vision is that 20% of them are from at risk and marginalised communities for whom the Award can be truly life-changing.
We know that cancer affects so much more than just your body.
Our aim is to bring improved health and enrichment to everyone affected by cancer. Whether you're dealing with a first-time diagnosis, or you are further on in your cancer journey and are looking for ways to live well post-treatment, we want to help you find the right physical and emotional support for you to build your resilience.
