Against Breast Cancer is dedicated to funding ground-breaking research to improve detection, treatment and increase survival after breast cancer diagnosis. Our goal is to prevent secondary spread, the cause of all breast cancer related deaths. We are funding research which seeks to better understand;
• how the body’s natural defenses could be harnessed to design more effective treatments against breast cancer
• how to design better tools for earlier diagnosis of secondary breast cancer
• how diet and lifestyle may increase or reduce the risk of secondary breast cancer
Our research will help doctors diagnose and treat breast cancer faster and more effectively. We receive no government funding, your support today will help to deliver the breast cancer treatments of tomorrow.
The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading UK charity for deaf children and their families. Our vision is of a world without barriers for every deaf child. We support deaf children from birth to independence, offering free information about deafness, leading ground-breaking campaigns, and running confidence building events. There are more than 45,000 deaf children in the UK, and most come from families with no first-hand experience of deafness. Without the right support, deaf children struggle at school, lack confidence and are vulnerable to bullying and abuse. They are more than twice as likely to be abused as other children, are 60% more likely to experience mental health problems and are almost twice as likely to fail to achieve five good GCSEs.
SeeAbility is a UK charity that provides extraordinary support and champions better eye care for people with learning disabilities and autism, many of whom have sight loss.
We have one of the most comprehensive in-house teams of specialists in the country, which includes consultant behaviour analysts, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, optometrists and vision rehabilitation workers. This means each person we support gets exactly the right kind of expert attention that they need when they need it.
Our Children in Focus sight testing programme is working to ensure that all children in special schools in England receive specialist sight tests; the right glasses can really help children to learn, communicate and feel more confident.
Your support means that you are helping people we support to overcome huge barriers, to achieve exciting new things every day: some big, some small, all extraordinary. Read more at www.seeability.org
YMCA is the largest and oldest youth charity in the world. Since we began in 1844, we’ve been transforming the lives of young people and their communities. We aim to create supportive, inclusive and energising communities where young people can belong, contribute and thrive. Last year, our 114 YMCAs in England made an impact on nearly 530 communities, delivering a host of services including accommodation, education, training, youth clubs and health and fitness programmes. YMCA works with many homeless and vulnerable young people. Last year, we intensely supported over 228,000 young people and every night we provide nearly 10,000 beds. Your support will enable us to continue to be there for young people when they need us most. You can find out more on our website - www.ymca.org.uk
