Bipolar UK is the national charity dedicated to supporting individuals with the much misunderstood and devastating condition of bipolar, their families and carers. We provide a range of services to enable people affected by bipolar and associated illnesses to take control of their lives. Each year we reach out and support over 65,000 individuals through our services and information/advice publications. We also work in partnership with research organisations and campaign for new developments to tackle key issues. Our services encompass a national network of self help groups, self management training courses, a mentoring scheme working with hospitals and psychiatric units, members services incorporating a dedicated Helpline, a youth service, workplace training and our vibrant e community, a web-based discussion forum for individuals affected by bipolar to share their views and experiences.
Blood Pressure UK is the only charity solely dedicated to lowering the nation's blood pressure to prevent disability and death from stroke and heart disease. Our vision is that everyone will know their blood pressure numbers, in the same way that they know their height or weight, and take steps to keep them healthy both now and in the future.
British Overseas NGOs for Development (BOND) is the UK membership body for organisations working in international development or supporting those that do through funding, research, training and other services. Established in 1993, we now have over 450 members ranging from large agencies with a world-wide presence to smaller, specialist organisations. We promote, support, represent and on occasion lead the work and interests of UK international development organisations, united by a common goal to eradicate global poverty. We work to influence governments and policy-makers, develop the skills of people in the sector, build organisational capacity and effectiveness and provide opportunities to exchange information, knowledge and expertise.
BookTrust is the UK's largest children's reading charity. Each year we reach 2.5 million children across the UK with books, resources and support to help develop a love of reading, because we know that reading can transform lives.
Bottletop is a dynamic charity run by young people, for young people. We fund youth education projects with a particular emphasis on sexual health, across the developing world, as well as the UK. We don't do this through donations of sympathy, but instead operate as a music and fashion label, making us truly unique. The proceeds from our sales of music and fashion products are used to support, small, local, specially selected grassroots education initiatives. The high praise drawn frm UN secretary general Kofi Annan and Bill Clinton are a testament to Bottletops success and innovation in the charity sector.
