Disabled Living needs to raise approximately £2,500 every day through voluntary contributions, legacies, trusts, trading and fundraising activities, which amounts to a total of £900,000 a year. It is only with this type of support that Disabled Living can continue to provide this wide range of high quality services for disabled people, their families and carers.
