Seashell Trust provides education and 52-week residential care for 135 children and young people aged 2 to 25 with profound learning disabilities and sensory impairments.
Our children and young people have some of the most complex needs and disabilities including deafness, blindness and autism, combined with physical disabilities and profound learning difficulties. All have some brain damage, and all have little or no ability to communicate.
We also offer Short Break (respite) provision for young people whose family may be at breaking point.
In addition, our award-winning Children's Able and Disabled Sports (CADS) Programme provides inclusive sporting opportunities for over 500 youngsters.
We help individuals develop the ability to communicate and make independent choices about basic everyday needs, sometimes for the first time in their lives.
As well as empowering our children and young people, we work with families to build the confidence needed to bring up a severely disabled child.
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Seashell Trust.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
