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.

Up Your Way Event - Glasgow
Following the success of our open day in May, we held a local event in Glasgow this July. Beneficiaries had the chance to meet our staff, catch up with old friends and get financial and wellbeing advice. We are looking to hold similar events throughout the country in the future.
