MCF Grant to Diverse Abilities - Coping with Chaos

In august 2020, thanks to a £60,000 grant over three years by the Masonic Charitable Foundation to the Dorset based Charity, Diverse Abilities, hundreds of children in across the country with complex disabilities can enjoy holidays with their families.
Children with complex disabilities tend to be excluded from other holiday activities due to unwelcoming attitudes, parents' fear of being judged and clubs not being able to cater to the children's needs. They can find it hard to interact with peers, and siblings can also feel very isolated. For many, this project provides the only chance they get to go out in the holidays.

This grant, along with others was made possible with funds donated to Festival 25 by Dorset Freemasons and Lodges.
