We aim to be the leading disability charity locally offering the broadest choice of high-quality services tailored to individual needs.

Imagine that your child was born with disabilities, and they need more care than you ever imagined.

Where do you turn?

Luckily, Dorset has a charity called Diverse Abilities that exists to help families cope with the struggles of caring for a child with complex needs.

If you are planning to scrap or sell your car, give a car instead to help a family access invaluable support, giving their child incredible care and the fun they deserve, and helping the family have a much deserved rest too.
