ABOUT US

Strongbones Children’s Charitable Trust is a national registered charity

Over a decade of caring

D.O.A Comic

Disabled children for so long have not seen any positive representation in the media that they consume. Department of Ability is the opportunity to start a change.

Support forum

We have been working hard not just to provide financial assistance, but also to provide a friendly and considerate ear to any parents who require advice.

Fundraise

You could host a coffee morning, tea party, boot sale, bake cakes to sell at school or work, shave your hair off or any other idea to help raise money for Strongbones!

Strongbones and Department of Ability Comic

Watching the way disabled people, particularly children are portrayed on television and in the media, dad Daniel White was becoming increasingly frustrated.

The 43-year-old illustrator knew from experience that disabled young people aren’t shy, retiring creatures who should be handled with kid gloves. His nine year old daughter Emily was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.  Emily is in a wheelchair but nothing stops her from playing basketball and football and roaring round the home.

Without Strongbones our daughter would have missed out on so much, they have supplied her with learning equipment, a trike and holidays away. They have left our family with memories we can cherish forever! Our Evie tells all her friends at school and teachers all about her favourite charity Strongbones, she tells them how much they help her and how amazing there parties are! Lol.

Strongbones is not just a charity for children, they give so much support to parents aswell, I have gone through some really tough times and they have been there for me offering support and helping me get through, introducing me to other mums with disabled children which helps us all support each other.

All the staff behind Strongbones are far beyond amazing! They all need a knighthood in my eyes! ???? and play a very important part in our families life, we are so thankful to them all for how long and hard they work to make a difference to all our beautiful disabled children.”

When we were at our lowest ever I came across a small support group on the Strongbones website! We have never looked back! We have the support and love from not only the Strongbones team now but children who are in a similar position to Myles with countless surgeries and the worry and grief that brings!

Myles was honoured to be asked to be a youth Ambassador for Strongbones a good few years ago now which involved giving out bravery awards to children who Myles thought were just ‘Brave’ beyond words! He also loves sharing his day trips and holidays on his own blog/vlogs on their website in the hope it will inspire other children and parents to visit places.

Strongbones and all of their supporters, fundraisers and individuals have given Myles not only the support and friendship he loves, this wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the funders and the hard work April, Rachael and the team put in to Strongbones! I can honestly say I think our lives would’ve taken a different path without the support of them! I can never ever THANK them enough! We love family ‘Strongbones’ we have met lifelong friends thanks to Strongbones”

After spending months in hospital, Jack received a beautiful Bravery Award. Such an amazing prize especially as it he chosen to receive it by another amazing child Myles the ambassador for Strongbones. From this we’ve gained some amazing friends who I know I can lean on in times of sadness, illness or achievements.

We’ve been invited to parties were we got to meet other amazing children and their families. Days of joy were no one gets left behind or forgotten about. Jack even received the most amazing balloons after a hospital stay. For all these thoughtful touches I can’t thank April, Rachel and the rest of team Strongbones enough, truly an amazing charity”
