Parity For Disability
Parity for Disability stands for excellence in the provision of services and support for people with profound and multiple disabilities and their families. We run vital services for people with multiple disabilities in Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire and beyond. Like all human beings, each person with multiple disabilities has their own needs, likes, dislikes, strengths and weaknesses. Each has a future, and the ability to learn and grow throughout their life. Each person can enjoy a good quality of life and achieve their potential. Most of the people who use Parity's services have a physical disability along with learning difficulties, and possibly sensory impairments or epilepsy. Most use a wheelchair and have limited movement. Most do not use speech. They don't fit into a neat category of physical or learning disability, so few services have evolved for them. We run day services providing opportunities to learn, socialise, get out and about and build skills. The people who use our services, called students, can also access vital therapies including physio and speech therapy. Parity for Disability exists to provide practical support and meet their needs. 'Parity' means equality. Our philosophy of Equality, Dignity and Rights for people with multiple disabilities is the driving force behind everything we do.

The Challenge:
In April 2017, I'm going to run my first marathon for a great charity called Parity for Disability
Why?
You might not have heard of Parity, they are a small charity, with day centres in Farnborough, Mytchett and Camberley. They also have a few charity shops which help fund raise. Their mission is to provide support to people with profound and multiple disabilities and their families.
Before Parity, there was a huge lack of services for people with profound and multiple disabilities left full-time education. A group of pioneering parents set up Parity’s first day services in 1991. Now, with the help of Parity their loved ones could continue to learn, develop, socialise, and integrate with the community, as well as attend to their physical and communication needs.
I recently visited Parity’s Farnborough day services - I was blown away with the positive attitude of the students and the support workers - they really make a huge difference.
Donate now!
With your donation, we can raise enough money to support people with multiple disabilities to communicate, make choices, achieve and take their place in the community. Parity must raise £120,000 this year to keep Parity’s high quality services running - let’s raise as much as we can to support Parity can reach the target!
