We offer quality assured practical help, both in and outside the home, desperately needed breaks, information and advice.

Harrison's fund

Harrison's Fund has one goal. To get as much money as possible into the hands of the world's best researchers, who are working to find a cure for Duchenne. It sounds like a horrible disease. And it is. Which is why we want to eradicate it. We're different from many other Duchenne charities out there because we're focusing on treatment rather than palliative care. And we work internationally. We invest in research that takes the science out from the lab, and into human clinical trials. So that, hopefully soon, more of those with Duchenne can grow into the strong men they're meant to be.

Every year, almost 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. This means over ten families are given this devastating news each day. Despite the huge advances that have been made in recent decades to improve treatments, cancer is the leading medical cause of death in children and young people, responsible for the loss of more than 500 young lives every year in the UK. No child should die from cancer. That’s why Children with Cancer UK invest millions of pounds each year in cutting-edge research: to help us understand why children get cancer in the first place and to better treat it, so that one day we can save the life of every young patient.

We were set up to combat the constant drip feed of negative stories spreading fear about the ‘other’ which is fuelling these divisions.

That’s why Link Up (UK) is creating interactive programmes for schools and community groups that break down the myths and stereotypes, show the benefits diversity has brought, and combat prejudice and discrimination.
