Why your donation is important to us
We are a charitable organisation that does not receive any Government funding. We rely entirely on membership fees, donations and funder support to continue providing our services. The Fellowship provides vital information about Polio and Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) to people with Polio, their families, carers as well as healthcare professionals and the general public. Please help us raise funds to continue our valuable work.
We support our members through Welfare, Heating & Holiday Grants, whilst our dedicated Support Service Team provides information on Polio & Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) and gives benefits advice.

This means that without any cost to you £10 can be turned into £12.50, just so long as donations are made through Gift Aid.
