Just think what's possible - with your support!


Percy Hedley Foundation is known as a practical charity, providing much needed support and services for children and adults with complex disabilities and their families.

All the money raised goes directly to provide vital services, specialist equipment and facilities in the North East that just wouldn't exist without your support.


Transforming Lives

TransformModern technology can transform the lives of people with severe disabilities.

Modern technology can enable children without speech to communicate and those who cannot hold a book or a pen to enter the world of learning. It can provide smart solutions in the home to increase independence and give people the mobility to play a full and active role in the community.

For example, with the use of new sports power chairs, disabled people can now participate in new and exciting sports, such as Powerchair Football, not just watch from the sidelines.

Giving disabled children the best start in life

MiaDisabled children and their families need help at the earliest possible stage, yet very little is available. We understand the importance of helping the whole family, that's why Percy Hedley Foundation provides a family support service to offer disabled children the best possible start in life.

Reaching out to help others
