The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis for everyone affected by the condition. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis. Our mission is to create a world where being born with CF no longer means a lifelong burden of care and an early death, when everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-limiting condition that makes it difficult to breathe, causes vulnerability to infection and restricts your ability to fulfil your ambitions. 

 

Medication, physiotherapy and general health all have to be taken into account when planning the simplest activity, and being unwell frequently interferes with work and education. But we're fighting to overcome all those hurdles – and more! ‘Unlimited’ means: • being able to breathe freely • no more fear of picking up deadly bugs from other people with cystic fibrosis • having the same opportunities as everyone else • spontaneity: being able to do what you want, when you want and not being constrained by appointments, insurance or medication • being able to attend school, college and university and getting the grades you deserve • being able to make the choices you want to make and living your own life to the full Unlimited means everyone with CF being able to live a long, healthy life, and taking control of their destiny.

We work in two ways: • Funding Day Trips: We run a grants programme to assist special schools, children's hospices, charities and support groups across the UK who are planning a group day trip. • Host Events: We host free events specifically designed for families, support groups and schools which are fun, imaginative, inclusive and safe. A wide variety of events are offered such as interactive performances, experiential learning and team building days, inclusive sports events, and sensory play with sound and light. We host ten events per year, mostly in London.

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a group of genetic skin conditions that cause the skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch. Those born with EB have skin so fragile they are called 'butterfly children' – their skin is quite simply as fragile as the wing of a butterfly.There is currently no known cure for EB. At DEBRA, our work is focused on funding research to change this, while also supporting people living with EB to enhance their quality of life through improved healthcare, access to information and respite care.

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is one of 47 local Wildlife Trusts around the UK working to promote and protect local wildlife. It covers the whole of Derbyshire and was founded in 1962 in response to environmental threats to the local countryside, since when it has continued to grow. The Trust is based at Middleton by Wirksworth, on the edge of the Peak District. It is a Registered Charity (Number 222212), supported by more than 14,000 members and over 500 volunteers.[1] The Trust manages nearly 50 Nature Reserves covering over 630 hectares (1,600 acres) throughout the county, from flooded gravel pits in the south to moorland and upland woodland in the north. Fourteen of these are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs). The Trust also works with schools, local communities, local authorities, landowners and others to promote and protect the natural environment. Environmental education and workshops are provided at the Avenue Washlands Visitor Centre, the Whistlestop Centre, and the Wildlife Discovery Room at Carsington Water. Derbyshire Wildlife Trust has a 'Living Landscape' approach to nature conservation. By working with local businesses, landowners, communities and individuals on habitat restoration and enhancement projects throughout the county, it is hoped landscape scale conservation will create a healthier environment for wildlife, the local economy and people.
