How Your Fundraising Helps
Imagine you had to spend 365 days a year staring at the same four walls. Or if you had to spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year constantly alert to the needs of your partner, child or loved one at any time of the day...
1 in 4 people in the UK is affected by disability - either they are disabled themselves or they care for someone who is. Vitalise helps thousands of disabled people and carers each year take much needed breaks but there are many thousands more in desperate need of support.
Read our leaflet (pdf) and find out who benefits from your fundraising
Vitalise spends over £8.3 million a year to ensure high quality care for disabled guests at our Centres, yet we receive no central government funding. We have to make every penny count and we urgently need the support and generosity of our fundraisers.
- We cater for over 150 different disabilities including cerebral palsy, Alzheimer's disease and MS.
- Over 3 in 5 people in the UK will become carers at some point in their lives and provide unpaid care and support to ill, frail or disabled friends or family members. We help carers take a break from the stresses and difficulties of their everyday lives.
Your fundraising can help in so many ways
It might help towards providing nursing care for a disabled person, the purchase of mobility equipment for one of our Centres or subsidising the cost of running a specialist Alzheimer’s week.
However you fundraise and whether you can raise a small amount from a cake sale to larger amounts from sporting events, we are immensely grateful for all your hard work.
