Our Work

The Douglas Bader Foundation exists to support people with limb difference and other physical disabilities as well as those with invisible disabilities such as diagnosed mental health conditions. As a charitable trust, we do this by supporting similar charities with campaigns, initiatives and appeals. We also run several initiatives of our own to offer practical help and support to improve the lives of adults and children affected by physical and mental challenges.
