22 Florentine Way,
The Elifar Foundation is a small charity which helps to improve the lives of children and adults with severe learning difficulty and associated physical disability.
We provide grants for a variety of items including electronic wheelchairs, specialised seating, eating aids, special beds and trikes, hoists, communication devices, sensory equipment and specialist holidays.
The intense challenge of daily management at home usually means that a grant will enhance life for the rest of the family too. A large number of people with severe neurological disability are children and young adults; so the majority of the applications received by the charity are on behalf of the young.
The trustees are all busy professional people and include a parent of two severely disabled children. Costs are kept to a minimum and the charity is run almost entirely by volunteers.
The Elifar Foundation relies entirely on independent donations and fundraising and enjoys the support of many individuals and companies, particularly within the UK retail property industry.
