Dyspraxia Foundation Job Vacancy : Fundraising Coordinator

This year, 2018, marks the 30th anniversary of the Dyspraxia Foundation, the UK’s only charity dedicated to raising awareness of dyspraxia, a neurological condition affecting fine and/or gross motor skills. We have achieved so much over the last three decades and aspire to create a sustainable future for our charity by building on our reputation and performance. We want to grow our offering and develop our capabilities, so that every donation we receive enables us to achieve that little bit more, from promoting better diagnostic and treatment facilities for those who have dyspraxia, to helping education and health professionals to assist those with dyspraxia, to doing all we can to promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia throughout society. ...read more

Dyspraxia Awareness Week 2018: Case Study – Marian

Marian talks about her experience of supporting her 11 year old son
