About your Good Cause

The British Polio Fellowship is the largest UK charity dedicated to supporting the tens of thousands of people who survived the polio epidemics of the first half of the 20th Century. There are estimated to be 120,000 people living in the UK alone who have had polio and are now suffering from the neurological condition of Post Polio Syndrome (PPS).

The British Polio Fellowship was established in 1939 and has since grown into a national membership organisation that supports approximately 10,000 members through its extensive network of Branches and Groups and a national information and support Telephone Helpline.

The needs of people living with polio and Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) are changing and increasing continuously and The Fellowship provides information on all aspects of managing the condition. It also provides a dedicated Disability and Benefits Advice Line and supports members in need through Welfare and holiday grants. The bi-monthly member magazine, The Bulletin, is a valuable source of information and has proven to be a lifeline to many of those who live in isolation.

 We receive no government funding for our core work and therefore depend on grants, donations to survive.
