LAST UPDATED AT 13:14 ON Fri 11 Jan 2013

Queen Elizabeth's Foundation for Disabled People (QEF) is a national disability charity with more than 75 years' experience developing vital and innovative services which support around 4,000 people every year with physical and learning disabilities or acquired brain injury. Whether it's by gaining new skills for living independently, rebuilding lives affected by brain injury, providing assistive equipment, acquiring skills to drive an adapted car, or training for employment, QEF helps disabled children and adults to achieve their goals in life and realise their full potential. Also, through MERU, part of QEF, we undertake vital work in making custom-made assistive aids for children with disabilities so complex that no available equipment meets their needs.
