The Thalidomide Trust currently supports 468 beneficiaries between 52 and 58 years of age. These are a remarkable group of people who have made outstanding achievements in their lives despite living with varying levels of disability.
We are a registered charity committed to ensuring that all our beneficiaries have access to the resources and support they need to maximise their quality of life. As part of this role, we gather evidence on the needs and experiences of our beneficiaries and commission discrete pieces of research.
Fit for the Future
We are holding our second Fit for the Future event in October. If you are a beneficiary of ours, you can download the booking form online. But hurry places are selling fast!

Beneficiary Open Day
We held our first ever Beneficiary Open Day in May 2017 where we invited our beneficiaries to come to the office and meet the staff. The informal event gave people a chance to put names to faces and chat with other beneficiaries.
