It's our birthday!

30 years!


We can’t believe it’s been 30 years since our founder Sally Bishop raised money for a powered wheelchair for a neighbour’s disabled son.


Since then we have provided hundreds of pieces of mobility equipment, provided thousands of training sessions and supported many young disabled adults into paid work. Find out more about history here.


Our 30th anniversary provides the ideal opportunity to say ‘thank you’ for your support over the years. Your time, generosity and support have allowed us to help disabled young people live more independent lives since 1992.

Since then, children and young people with disabilities and autism have been welcomed through our doors as part of their journey, finding a safe place to learn new skills, grow in confidence and meet new people.

We couldn’t do this without you. We would like to invite you to get involved during 2022 and join us in celebrating during our 30th anniversary year!

Tell us what you’re doing to commemorate #AFK30, to celebrate our work over the years. From charity walks, virtual challenges and coffee mornings, we want to share your efforts! Get in touch on social media, or register your event today!
