Our Purposes

Our purpose is to financially assist severely disabled people of all ages, individually or in groups to enable them to have access to equipment and services which will make a positive difference to their quality of life. Through the personal experience of some of our friends and relatives, we realise that statutory provision does not always cover items and services which are very specialised and that these can make an important contribution to the wellbeing of severely disabled people. We see this as the target area for our donations.

Can we help you?

Have a look at our FAQ's page before applying to check whether you or your organisation fit our criteria.

Thank you for visiting DTD Charity. The charity is supported by contributions from the employees, customers and management of Dusk Till Dawn.
