The Encephalitis Society is a UK based charity with worldwide links that aims to improve the quality of life of all people affected directly and indirectly by encephalitis. Encephalitis is an often life-threatening illness caused by infection, usually viral, or by autoimmune diseases affecting the brain. Survivors are left with an acquired brain injury, the degree and severity of which will vary. The resultant difficulties may include cognitive, physical, emotional or behavioural consequences. The Encephalitis Society provides support to adults and children affected, their families and carers; produces evidence based information on all aspects of the condition in printed, electronic, video and audio formats; raises awareness about the condition and its subsequent problems among professionals, statutory agencies and the general public; conducts research and works in partnership with other researchers and their establishments. If you want to find out more about our work please visit our website at www.encephalitis.info or get in touch with us on 01653692583.
Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity is a national charity raising funds to improve the quality of life for children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. Serious illness is always distressing, but in a child it is cruelly so, as it steals away childhood itself. The Foundation funds an innovative range of projects to ensure children in hospitals and hospices have a better, brighter future. Projects include arts, music and play therapy programmes, sensory equipment and facilities, respite care, state of the art equipment and parent accommodation.
Red Nose Day is when the nation comes together to have a laugh and raise money to change people’s lives in the UK and across Africa. Red Nose Day is an initiative of Comic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England/Wales) SC039730 (Scotland)

Each time we choose a mix charities..... the blend to reach the total we feel reflects everything that we do with Energised.
Comic Relief, Red Nose Day.... the Fun behind Energised and a great cause we support every year. Wallace and Gromit's Foundation, so key and works with many of our teenage clients, plus Shaun the Sheep... check out the route in London. B-Eat, as we really want to support so many of our clients who have body image, eating and confidence issues to resolve, and realise how amazing they are, and it's their awareness week 23rd Feb - 1st March, St Peters Hospice, as the care and support they give to so many people is invaluable in many ways... and finally the Encephalitis Society, with their Awareness Day on 22nd Feb, and our Head Coach learning to manage things....
