Give in celebration
Asking your friends and family to give to our cause on your special day will help us to make families with disabled children's lives easier. Birthdays, weddings or anniversaries are the ideal time to make that difference to people's lives!
What difference will my money make?
There are thousands of families with disabled children in the UK. Your money will go towards helping families overcome the sometimes, enormous challenges they face. Your money will help:
- make families less isolated - just one day out can make such a difference to disabled children and their families - read our report on isolation [PDF] to find out more about the situations families face
- provide specialist training and information for parents - including behaviour that challenges, managing sleep problems, managing debts and the common challenges that families face
- help parents deal with the financial pressures they face - we found out it cost three times more to raise a child with a disability compared to one without. We help parent carers have access to the help they need. Our advisers help over 900 people a month over the phone and over 1,000 people face to face.
Read more about the challenges of raising a disabled child in the UK in the parent stories section and see what difference your money can make!

Lisa's giving story
Supporter Lisa set up a Contact Justgiving page and her own special JustTextGiving text code for friends and family to donate £2 to Contact instead of birthday cards.
You can do the same for cards or gifts by setting up your own Justgiving page. Or raise funds on the day with a collection using our Contact donation boxes.
