What we do

The Douglas Bader Foundation exists to advance and promote the physical, mental and spiritual welfare of persons who are born without or have lost one or more limbs, are otherwise physically disabled or have a diagnosed mental health issue.

DBF achieves this through the various facets of the charity:

  • Bader Information supplies advice and information. We also have a small team of people who are happy to talk on a one to one basis and offer help and support based on personal experience. If we can’t help you ourselves, we will always do our best to put you in touch with people or organisations who can.
  • Bader Grants gives financial support to help individuals or groups to achieve personal goals.
  • Bader Braves offers children experiences that encourage teamwork and participation and help to instill a sense of self-confidence.
  • Team Bader encourages and enables participation in sport or team/group events so that participants can benefit from the social, physical and creative aspects of their involvement.

Your support is essential as we rely entirely on donations to continue our invaluable work.
