Enable Ability is established as an independent charity for the care, welfare and advancement of disabled people in Portsmouth and the surrounding area.
We work in partnership with disabled children and adults, their families and carers, to provide a range of high quality, professional and confidential services.
We support people with severe disabilities as well as those whose needs are at a more ‘mild to moderate’ level. Altogether we provide for approximately 500 children and adults via 11 different services. The charity is funded through Local Authority contracts, grant awarding bodies (e.g. Children in Need and The National Lottery), fees, donations, fund raising events, investments and rental income.
Our key challenges over the next three years comprise: building sufficient capacity to meet increased demand; responding effectively to parent / carer expectations concerning levels of service provision; reductions in funding that we will receive from statutory agencies, increased competition for grant funding and having the capacity to fully meet fundraising targets through events, sponsorship and donations.
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Enable Ability.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
