How Your Donation Helps
Staring at the same 4 walls, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, is a sad reality for many disabled people.
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.
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 your support and generosity.

Every donation we receive helps us to reach out to more people
Vitalise caters 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. Vitalise helps carers take a break from the stresses and difficulties of their everyday lives.
Your donation 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.
