Every child deserves an equal chance at a full life.

What you can do

Research proves that children who face additional challenges do better when they are included in normal childcare and schooling. This level of inclusion takes resources: training, research and support. That takes money. While government funding helps, it only covers a third of our expenses. For the rest, we rely on you.
