We believe children and young people should be ABLE to fulfil their potential. We support disabled, sick and disadvantaged young people to overcome barriers and we need your help. Whether you give £1 or £1,000 it all makes a different to a young person’s life, a young person like Daisy.
Daisy was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2, a rare genetic condition which affects the growth and strength of the muscle, when she was 16 months old. Daisy will never be able to stand, walk or run like the children in her playgroup, but thanks to money given by DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, Daisy has a Wizzybug. The Wizzybug is a special adapted motorised chair developed by Designability, which gives Daisy the opportunity to be mobile and independent. Daisy is able to play with the other kids in her playgroup and enjoy her freedom. To read more about Daisy please click here.
Since 2000 the Foundation has donated over £17.5 million to thousands of fantastic projects across Europe that have helped a millions of children and young people. We are committed to transforming the lives of young people and we thank you for helping us try to reach this goal.
