During this unprecedented period of national disruption and uncertainty, Caudwell Children is launching an emergency appeal for donations to help us support disabled children and families through the crisis.

Disabled children and their families are feeling isolated, fearful and confused and need our help more than ever. Yet, the increased burden placed on the NHS and social services by the coronavirus outbreak means that many services for disabled children will be adversely impacted for the foreseeable future.

A significant percentage of our fundraising comes from charity events and individual challenges, which we are unable to hold for the foreseeable future due to restrictions on social gatherings. This makes it more difficult for us to support the thousands of disabled children who so desperately need our help.

Without our continued support, disabled children will become the silent and forgotten victims of this terrible crisis.
