Your Help

There are many ways you can help the Douglas Bader Foundation to service the limb loss community.

Become a Friend of the Foundation

To help us raise invaluable funds we are inviting supporters of our work to become a friend of the Foundation. You can become a Friend for £20 a year or a Corporate Friend for £200 a year.


We are always looking for volunteers to help with office administration; with organising our in-house events or to organise an event or activity on behalf of the foundation. If you think you can help us with an existing event, such as driving a transport vehicle for one of our challenges or helping out at a Bader Braves Young Aviators Day then please contact us by following this link.


We organise a number of exciting events and activities throughout the year. We actively encourage amputees and individuals with other disabilities to participate in these events alongside able bodied individuals and groups. This forms part of our mission for inclusion. Why not join us and participate in one of our exciting and often life-changing local or international challenges; such as walking the Great Wall of China or rowing a Dragon Boat. For more information on our events and activities please visit the Bader Challenge section of the website, where you can request an information pack. You may just have the time of your life!

You could also organise your own Event whereupon you could count on the advice and support of the DBF. Don’t forget we can also publicise your Event on our Website.

Financial Support

The Douglas Bader Foundation is reliant on charitable donations to carry out the invaluable work we do with the limb loss community. As with all useful services there is a cost for delivering these vital life lines. To continue our work we rely on donations from individuals, corporations and trusts. If you’ve found any of the services we offer useful and you’d like to make a contribution to the continued success of the DBF please visit our donation section at the top of the Home Page.
