Our #GetMoving campaign will run throughout the summer and we’ll be sharing stories about the everyday problems faced by people with a disability or long term illness. These include returning home from hospital or moving to an adapted home; attending university or college; joining family and friends on trips; popping to the shops or moving safely around the home. Our grants help people to get moving. Whether the grant is used towards mobility equipment or home adaptations, there’s an immediate and positive difference to managing daily life.
