Birtle & Rochdale Riding for Special Needs

We are a dedicated charity offering horse riding for disabled adults and children from the local community.

All our helpers and volunteers and we rely completely on donations and grants to fund our activities. Riding benefits those that take part in a number of ways. Physically, as they will be using muscle groups that may not have been used for some time and also often it builds confidence and the ability to listen and take instruction. Importantly it can also help them to feel a parity with able bodied people who ride, which builds self esteem.

Our riders take part in hacks out in the countryside if weather permits and if not we have an indoor school where they can learn simple movements on their ponies.

We also organise a gymkhana which is very popular as it gives them the chance to be involved in fun games and parents and family can come along to support and cheer them on.

We have been offering this service since 2004 and we believe we are the only organisation of this type in the local area. We aim to offer a fun activity in a controlled and safe environment and are very grateful for your support.

Canterbury Oast Trust

Having a learning disability affects the way a person learns, understands information and communicates. This can leave some people facing discrimination, exclusion and even abuse, leading to low self esteem, loneliness and at risk of being in poverty. Our charity believes that people with learning disabilities should be given the same chances as everyone else to live the life they choose, to be more independent and to be valued.

We support people by providing a family home, care to meet their individual needs and, through accredited training, provide an opportunity to increase practical skills, develop communication and social skills and grow in confidence and self esteem. Our inspirational care and training services provide the space, time and flexibility to empower people to reach their full potential.

Much of our training is delivered through social enterprises, raising funds to support our work, and involving the wider community helping to break down barriers and foster a greater understanding of disability. Our training includes agriculture and animal welfare at our farm - the Rare Breeds Centre (which is a farm based visitor centre), arts and crafts, catering and retail, IT training, conservation at Poulton and horticulture in Rainbow Nursery.

If you would like more information or would like to get involved, please contact fundraising@c-o-t.org.uk.

If you play just once a week, in your first year your support would enable an isolated disabled person to attend our digital skills training centre, with their journey to and from home provided by our team of dedicated drivers. In a single day, that individual will enjoy getting out and about, learning new skills, making friends, and socialising with others.

Our Transport is a vital lifeline to hundreds of disabled and older people, providing journeys to the shops, day centres, medical appointments or visit family and friends. Meanwhile, our Training service is helping disabled adults to learn computer skills, to make the most of the internet, look for work and keep in touch with family and carers.

Last year, more than 1,600 people used one or more of Compaid's services. Trained staff work alongside committed volunteers to keep our costs as low as possible, but we still need to raise £170,000 in donations each year.

Dog A.I.D

Independence is something that many of us take for granted, but imagine having to wait for someone to come and pick up a dropped item that is out of your reach, or having to call someone just to operate a light switch, or open a door for you; not being able to get to a ringing phone or perhaps emergency medication in time. This can be debilitating and a drain on confidence, in some cases leading to social isolation and an inability to leave the home environment.

Having an Assistance Dog transforms people's lives. By providing a personal dog trainer to help the client train their own pet to become an Assistance Dog, the client grows in self-confidence as well as being physically enabled.

The dogs are taught bespoke tasks, dependent on the owner's needs. They can open and close doors, operate light switches, put in and take out washing from a machine, find the phone and pick up dropped items. Assistance Dogs enable greater independence, bring social contact and reduce isolation. Dog A.I.D. clients also gain an enhanced bond with their pet, providing comfort and devotion.

Can you help us to increase independence for more physically disabled people?

Ezer LaYeled

Ezer LaYeled Ltd provides advice, therapy and support to children who are affected by illness and disability; including physical, behavioural, emotional, developmental or academic difficulties.

Children's education is vital to their future and when they struggle with an illness and/or physical/educational disability without appropriate advice and support then they cannot realise their true potential which in return had a detrimental effect on their self-esteem, behaviour and prospects for future employment.

By identifying the cause of the difficulties that the individual is experiencing and by providing unique solutions; including advice, support, sign posting and therapy packages, this enables the children and their families to approach their problems with confidence and focus.

Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland

By taking part in Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland's (SBH Scotland) Unity Lottery you will be helping us to raise vital funds to improve the quality of life of children, young people and adults affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and allied conditions.

Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) provide a lifetime commitment of specialist support and information to all those affected by these lifelong, complex disabilities including family members, carers and healthcare professionals. Created in 1965 by parents for parents and their children, over 50 years later we're now a national charity with individuals remaining at the heart of everything we do. SBH Scotland's Support Team work across Scotland to support over 3,500 individuals with a range of services including: a helpline, one-to-one support in homes and schools, combined clinics, support groups, financial advice, play sessions and workshops.

It costs £1million every year to provide our current level of service and with little government funding every donation is vital. Thank you for playing the Unity Lottery.

When a child is first diagnosed it is a very emotional and stressful time for parents and other family members. Parents may feel socially isolated, frustrated and under a great deal of emotional and financial pressure. Families need advice and support to help them come to terms with the initial situation that faces them and learn how to manage in the years ahead. Such support will also be required throughout the child's life and into adulthood, to ensure that all the specialised needs are met.

“Until I contacted SBH Scotland I had never been able to speak to anyone about the problems I was facing and it was a relief to meet others who understood. Over the years when things have been tough, the charity have always provided us with the support we needed.” Pauline O'Malley, an SBH Scotland Mum.

Thank you for your support.

Stick 'n' Step

Cerebral Palsy is a type of brain damage that affects 1 in every 400 children in the UK. It limits the control an individual has over their muscles, and affects each person differently. Some people might struggle to walk, or talk, or others might struggle to dress or feed themselves.

At Stick ‘n' Step we work with babies and children to improve their confidence, independence and mobility. They come to us every week to work on their personal goals, and to make new friends.

We don't charge for our services and don't receive any government funding, and so we rely 100% on the generosity of individuals and the local community to keep our door open.

Talbot House

Manchester Carers Forum and Talbot House help unpaid carers. Talbot house work with the parents of children and adults with learning disabilities. Manchester Carers Forum works with all carers.

Both charities are led by unpaid carers so we really know how it feels to be a carer. We know that caring for a loved one can be a highly rewarding experience, but it can also be very lonely and feel like a rollercoaster ride. Feelings of failure, anger, constant worry and the sense that you are alone are common. Knowing that someone cares is a lifeline.

Through our support groups, training, mentoring and fun activities along with our role as advocates who stand up for carer's rights we can be that lifeline.

Here's what are users say

“Thank-you for your care and concern for the families of people with dementia. Its great work that you do, and we are very blessed by the Manchester Carers Forum”.

'Talbot House showed me there is more to life then being lost, isolated and that I am not alone'

Thank you it was like being handed a map

Can you imagine being unable to hold your head upright to see the world around you, to sit on your own, or stand independently? For the children we work with this is a heart-breaking reality. At The Movement Centre we help to address these control issues by providing a unique therapy, Targeted Training, which enables children to gain essential functional skills, completely changing their lives.

We know that Targeted Training makes a huge difference to the lives of the children who visit our centre, but because it is a specialist physiotherapy service, it falls outside the remit for standard NHS funding. This means we rely on the generous support of individuals and organisations to enable us to deliver our vital work.

‘It was my first call to a helpline and was a bit worried as to how my query would be received. I can now go forward, I actually cried with relief at the end of the call. At last someone knows my problem. Thank you' – a lovely comment about Anna who works on The Autism Helpline.

Last year, advisers like Anna at The Autism Helpline received thousands of calls from people who desperately need help and advice. The Autism Helpline would not exist without the support of people like you, and it makes such a difference to the lives of autistic people, their families and friends.

Good luck and thank you!

The Wilf Ward Family Trust

As a registered charity The Wilf Ward Family Trust has been providing social care services since 1986 to a range of children, adults and older people with health or disability needs. These include:

  • Short Breaks, Holidays and Residential Services for children and adults with disabilities
  • Activities and Access to Individual Community Services for adults and children
  • Direct Payments Support Agencies

As a charity the Trust is proud of it's achievements in supporting all vulnerable individuals in maximising their independence in the community. We believe passionately that people should be given choice and control over the services they need by ensuring a personalised and tailor made package.

The Trust operates across the Yorkshire and North East of England and has plans to extend into other local authority areas as development opportunities arise.

At Umbrella, we support children and young people up to the age of 30 with any physical or learning disability and extend support to the entire family.

For families living in Derby City and Southern Derbyshire, we provide group activities, 1 to 1 / 2 to 1 supports at home or in the community and also run family support groups, siblings clubs, family days and information services. We empower families and help young people realise their potential whilst having fun in a safe environment and offering peer support for families. We do as much as we can for families in the local area!

Although we receive funding from various providers, this doesn’t cover specialist equipment, toys and technology for the young people or special days out for families. We also need to raise money for the running of some of our youth clubs, the siblings groups and to help with any snags at Umbrella House. We aim to raise £50,000 a year to continue to provide this valuable service and we really appreciate all the support we receive.
