Handicap International is 35 years old today!

Founded on 19th July 1982, our teams have been working every day to change the lives of disabled and vulnerable people. But without your support, we could not be there to help.

So we'd like to say a big thank you to all our donors, supporters, and volunteers who make our work possible!

 

Take part in an inclusive fun run

If you'd like to do your bit for a more inclusive world, why not sign up for Parallel London, a  fully accessible, inclusive fun run?

To celebrate our birthday we have five free places available for anyone wanting to raise life-changing funds and enjoy a fantastic day out with friends and family.
