Disability Foundation is now Online, and Centre to Re-open in November
A message from our colleagues at the Disability Foundation:
It’s been over 6 months since The Disability Foundation had to shut its doors to the public. This decision was made with a very heavy heart. It quickly became clear that it was simply not safe for our members or staff to be open, and as a wellbeing charity, completely against our ethos.
Our therapies have always been a lifeline to our users – those with complex and chronic medical needs and disabilities, their families, carers (both paid and unpaid) and NHS Staff – the key groups of people most affected by COVID 19. This has been frustrating and upsetting for everyone involved in the charity, our committed team as well as our users, who have relied upon our services. We know that being shut has created huge difficulties and the lack of any support has made these difficult months even more challenging.
It may seem like the charity has been dormant over these Covid months, but in reality it has been tirelessly trying to finding new ways to help the people who need us as well as finding the funding to provide our services – having been shut for so long has meant TDF, like so many charities and organisations, has lost a huge amount of income.
In late August, TDF began Wellbeing Webinars thanks to emergency funding from Harrow. These take place daily on zoom at 10.30am, last for half an hour, and range from breathing technique, seated exercise to mindfulness and meditation. If you are interested in logging on please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the zoom webinar mailing list.
