We really appreciate all the support we receive from schools, to get your school involved in fundraising read on...

How your school can support QEF

Fundraising is a wonderful way to teach children and young people about the importance of giving back to their community but, more specifically, fundraising for QEF allows the opportunity to educate pupils about the challenges disabled children and young people can face.

Your school can support the work we do here at QEF by fundraising for any of our specific projects or, by making us your charity of the year - it’s completely up to you!


How QEF can support schools

We are dedicated to supporting all schools that fundraise for us and therefore can offer an assembly for your pupils, as well as support throughout your fundraising events and activities via telephone, email and in person.


How QEF supports children

Here at QEF we are fortunate to have MERU as part of our family of charities, we offer disabled children a range of ready-made disability products aimed at supporting them in increasing their independence. For example:

Our Switch Adapted Toys adaptation programme is aimed at making simple toys that help very young children more accessible to disabled children by adding larger buttons and different switches.

The Bugzi Loan-Scheme offers pre-school children a free indoor powered wheelchair that allows children with disabilities to experience independent mobility for the first time in their lives. The video below shows how our Bugzi changed life for 2 year old Max.


If you would like your school to fundraise for QEF, either as your charity of the year/term or for a one off event, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Jolene Ryan (Events Development Executive).
