Address: National Children’s Bureau, WeWork London Fields, 115 Mare Street, London E8 4RU

Our vision is a society in which disabled children and young people’s rights are respected, their aspirations supported and life chances are assured. We want disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs to have full and happy childhoods, to fulfill their potential, and be active within the community. And we want parents of disabled children to be parents first – living ordinary lives.

Who we are

We are the umbrella body for the disabled children’s sector with a membership of over 300 voluntary and community organisations and an active network of practitioners that spans education, health and social care.

As a membership body we provide a collective voice that champions the rights of children, young people and their families and challenges barriers to inclusion.

As a collective we believe that the views of disabled children and young people are vital to the development of an inclusive society and that they have the right to be heard and actively participate in decisions that affect them.

We believe that every child and young person should enjoy the same rights and opportunities and that every aspect of society should be fully inclusive to disabled children and young people.

Helpline: 0808 808 1000

Our mission is to improve the quality of life of people affected by neurological problems by providing expert information, support and education.

Our expert services are there for people at every stage, from first symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and in the long term.

Neurological conditions and associated treatments are often complex and poorly understood by those affected and their families. Many people wait for a long time for diagnosis while living with ongoing symptoms and the anxiety of not knowing what the future holds. The Brain & Spine Foundation exists to provide information, answer questions, reduce anxiety and to inform choices.

The charity is entirely funded by voluntary donations from our supporters; we receive no government funding.

We have a helpline, people can contact us by telephone, email and post. We also have online support groups and hold events for patients, carers and health professionals.
