Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a charity providing assistance dogs to support deaf people. They aim to improve the lives of adults and children with severe and profound hearing loss, by training dogs to respond to important sounds; sounds that include an alarm clock and a fire alarm. A hearing dog can be truly transformative for a deaf person, giving practical assistance, companionship and a new feeling of confidence to deal with the world around them. Their work helps deaf people to leave loneliness behind and reconnect with life.

Versus Arthritis

Versus Arthritis

Over 10 million adults, young people and children across the UK are living in pain every day because of arthritis.  Arthritis is not just aches and pains, it can isolate you from your community and can stop you being able to work, be independent or spontaneous. Even simple tasks like your weekly food shop can feel impossible. 

Versus Arthritis is the charity pushing back.  They believe no one should face the pain and isolation of arthritis alone. They provide support and information whenever it’s needed, fund research to develop breakthrough treatments and campaign for arthritis to be recognised.

Winston’s Wish

Winston’s Wish

Winston’s Wish supports children through one of the most devastating losses they will ever face, the death of a parent or sibling.

As the first charity to introduce dedicated child bereavement support into the UK, they continue to lead the way in providing specialist support in individual, group, school and residential settings; via a Freephone National Helpline; online support and publications. Last year alone they supported over 17,000 children. 

Winston’s Wish has a simple mission; to listen when a child is grieving, to act when a child needs our help and to know what to say when it is time to talk.
