We provide individuals with accessible information and personalised, practical help to help them increase their financial independence and security and improve the quality of their lives.
Our plans and actions are based on the belief that disabled people and people who may be vulnerable for a variety of reasons:
1. Have the same value and status as everyone else
2. Have a right to make important decisions for themselves
3. Have a right to support from their families, communities and any other support which will help them achieve their wishes and goals
4. Have a right to influence and shape services and service delivery

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
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!
