Meningitis Now has a vision where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives. We do this by funding research into prevention in the form of vaccines as we believe it is the most effective way to save lives. We offer a range of services from a dedicated helpline, to counselling and complementary therapies, to events so that families can get together and share their experiences. We believe that nobody should have to face meningitis on their own.

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. In 2016, 1,666 young people took their own lives. That equates to over four per day.

We deliver awareness and prevention training, provide confidential support and suicide intervention through HOPELineUK, campaign and influence national policy, and empower young people to lead suicide prevention activities in their own communities.
Here are some of our core beliefs:
PAPYRUS believes that many young suicides are preventable
PAPYRUS believes that no young person should suffer alone with thoughts or feelings of hopelessness

The leaders give the buddies support within the time of the sessions (every Wednesday morning) and they are also asked to look out for their buddie around school in general.

The Alkaptonuria Society

1101052

Alkaptonuria, also known as AKU or Black Bone Disease, is an extremely rare genetic condition, which can cause significant damage to the bones, cartilage and tissues of those affected. AKU normally only affects one in every 250,000 people worldwide. AKU is a recessive condition that is caused by a mutation of one chromosome, this means that if two people carry the faulty gene, their child still only has a 25% chance of developing AKU.

It causes a build-up of toxic acid in the body that eats away at the patient's bones, cartilage and tissue, turning them black and brittle – a process called ochronosis. This leads to a variety of life-changing disabilities. Patients develop early onset osteoarthritis, which leads to joint replacements and extreme pain.

The Birchall Trust

1109637

The Birchall Trust is a registered charity providing therapeutic support to people whose lives have been affected by sexual abuse and rape in South Cumbria and North Lancashire. The main service it provides is one-to-one counselling delivered by specialist counsellors and therapists for adults, young people and children over the age of 4. This includes pre-trial therapy for those individuals going through a criminal justice process. Support and information are also provided to partners and other family members to enable them to help their loved one on their journey of recovery.

A variety of training opportunities are provided in the local community which focus on raising awareness and prevention. Working in partnership with a range of organisations, training is provided to vulnerable young people as well as to professionals.

The Birchall Trust has been working in the local community for the last 28 years and has established an excellent reputation for its specialist knowledge and expertise. It operates from a set of shared values that ensure service users are treated with respect, understanding and compassion.

The charity was founded by Christine Birchall in 1991 and was initially called the South Cumbria Rape and Abuse Service. Christine was inspired to set up the service after she watched a BBC documentary highlighting the lack of support for victims of rape and sexual abuse. Christine set about gaining qualifications in counselling and set up a local support service, running from an attic room in Kendal with £300 and a telephone contributed by British Telecom. The service was initially run by Christine supported by two volunteers.

From these humble beginnings the charity has developed significantly over the years. After initially having its main base in Kendal, the charity moved to 60, Hartington Street in Barrow in 2000 where it has had its main offices and counselling rooms for the last 19 years. Following Christine’s death in 2006, the organisation decided to change its name to the Birchall Trust. This was not only to recognise Christine’s work but also to give the charity a more palatable and dignified name which was well received.

In 2010 the charity expanded into North Lancashire and now has 5 counselling/therapy rooms in Barrow, 2 counselling/therapy rooms in Kendal, 1 counselling room in Lancaster and 7 counselling/therapy rooms and an office space at a Community Hub in Morecambe.

THE BIRKETT - SMITH ANIMAL SANCTUARY

1152016

Who Are We And What Do We Do..
I started the Birkett-Smith Animal Sanctuary six years ago on my smallholding in Dorset and formalised as a registered Charity two years after that in 2013. We are now the largest Sanctuary and Rehabilitation centre of it's kind in the UK. Here at The Sanctuary we provide forever homes for domestic, farm and wildlife animals. Most have behavioural issues, are aggressive, old, disabled, human scared etc. So we basically take in the animals that stand little or no chance of gaining homes let alone the security of a forever home and our experience now encompasses neurological disability and dysfunction, deafness, blindness and partial paralysis. Our 200 animals include dogs, cats, pigs, sheep, horses, all farm birds, emus and even a seagull! We are also one of the the very few UK sanctuaries that will take aggressive and fear aggressive dogs as we have a no kill policy full stop. We rehabilitate these animals as much as we can over time to enable them to achieve a happy life here at the sanctuary. I'm not classed as a rescue but I am a rescuer and that is the other side of our sanctuary.

At the end of 2014 I noticed that there was a huge gap in the system, dogs needed somewhere to recover. The poundies and the failed rescue dogs needed another option for another chance and in most cases a last chance. They needed a chance at living, a chance at rehab in order to be able to go into a home, some for the first time, some to start over and this is where the idea for SOS Havens was born. I had the space, I had the ability and the passion and I was already rehabilitating our sanctuary dogs so I extended my reach and opened the sanctuary to UK rescues. The SOS Havens give them a place of safety and a place where whatever their reactions they are accepted. A place where whatever their issues they are given time, time to link in and to enable them to face the world again but a new world under the protection of their rescues with lifetime RBU after rehab.

There are few dogs that can't be re-homed in time, there are some that could be but are safer due to their strength or issues to not go back into a domestic environment simply because thier safety can't be guaranteed but there are many more that can safely move into foster after rehab and continue their journey to their forever sofa. Unfortunately most of these dogs are beyond the remit of normal rescues and sadly many of them are put to sleep before they get the chance to mend. I work with these damaged dogs, along side my own sanctuary dogs to install faith in them and glue them all back together with love and care until they are whole again and to show the world that it is possible to undo what others have done to them. They leave here with new skills and thier rescues gain the knowledge needed to help them move onto the next step in thier journey. The SOS Havens have become a last chance for many, the final hope.

Due to the nature of the animals we have, their care can be intensive and very costly and it all takes time and volunteers and without our Birkett - Smith Family this would not be possible. So please support us in any way you can as we continue to grow and save lives and join us with our fundraising and projects as slowly one by one we take in animals to safety.
