Diverse Abilities receives support from many trusts and charitable foundations and much of our work wouldn’t be possible without their generous support.

Trusts and foundations help us provide ongoing support to children and young people with disabilities and their families.  Grants have funded recreational activities for children and young people, our weekly youth club for young people with disabilities and buy essential equipment for our special school Langside.  Their support has enabled us to support even more children and young people with disabilities and expand our services into new geographical areas.

Diverse Abilities is extremely grateful to all of the trusts and foundations that choose to support us.  If are from a trust or foundation and would like to hear more about our work, please contact or

Here are a few of our trust and foundation supporters and how they have made such a difference to Diverse Abilities.

Trust – Talbot Village Trust

The support of the Talbot Village Trust has been instrumental in helping people with complex disabilities to move from unsuitable accommodation to a specially adapted bungalow by providing funding for the purchase and refurbishment of a number of properties in Poole.  They have also provided vital equipment at Diverse Abilities’ day centre for adults with disabilities so they can be more involved with other people at the centre.  Talbot Village’s latest support is for children and young people.  The Talbot Village Trust is making a huge difference in the lives of children and adults across Dorset.

Foundation – Scott Symes – Scott Symes Wealth Management

Scott Symes, from Scott Symes Wealth Management, nominated Diverse Abilities to St James’s Place Foundation, helping us receive a £2,500 grant.  This funding will help pay for five soft play sessions for up to 250 local disabled children and their siblings.  Diverse Abilities was very grateful for the grant as the sessions make such a difference to children with disabilities and their families, because many clubs are not unable to accommodate additional children’s needs and disabilities.  Each year the charity has to raise thousands of pounds to support activities, so having this funding and support really helped.
