The Douglas Bader Foundation exists to advance and promote the physical, mental and spiritual welfare of persons who are born without or have lost one or more limbs, or otherwise physically disabled. We have recently extended our remit to include support in relevant circumstances to adults and children who suffer from a diagnosed mental health issue. We achieve this through the various facets of the charity: BILL supplies advice. We also have a small team of people who are happy to talk and offer help and support usually based on personal experience. Bader Grants gives financial support to help individuals or groups to achieve personal goals. In an initiative set up on the death of Lady Bader in 2015 Lady Bader Grants and Special Awards are offered on a discretionary basis to applicants whose goals and interests reflect those of Lady Bader during her lifetime. Bader Braves offers children experiences that encourage teamwork and participation and help to instill a sense of self-confidence. Team Bader encourages and enables participation in sport or team/group events so that participants can benefit from the social, physical and creative aspects of their involvement.
