The Sequal Trust received £5,000 to help fund communication equipment for disabled children and adults

The Sequal Trust is a national fundraising charity, dedicated to bridging the communication gap for disabled people of all ages. Working closely with Speech and Language Therapists and Special Needs tutors, the charity provides the best and most suitable communication aids for people with speech, movement and learning disabilities.

The charity funds a wide range of communication devices from iPads to eye-operated systems, depending on the needs of the individual, and offers lifelong support; maintaining, repairing and replacing all equipment as and when it is needed.

The Sequal Trust aims to help each of its members to reach their full potential; to live as independently as possible, to learn, and to interact  with the world around them.

The NHS is unable to fund many of these devices, so demand for the charity’s services is becoming increasingly high.

In 2017, the Masonic Charitable Foundation awarded £5,000 to The Sequal Trust  to help them continue to offer the gift of communication to disabled people throughout the UK

The Sequal Trust is extremely grateful to the Masonic Charitable Foundation for this generous grant in support of our work with the disabled community. We are receiving applications for help with the provision of communication aids on a daily basis and as we do not receive any statutory funding, the grant will be indispensable to the continuing effectiveness of our services

Roy, Lincolnshire

When my daughter became ill four years ago, we took in our two young grandchildren, Adam and Amymae. Of course we were very happy to have them live with us, but we didn’t realise just how much it would increase our outgoings. With two extra mouths to feed, the electricity bills and the cost of…

Ted and Sally

After a premature birth, Ted developed cerebral palsy which means that he can’t walk or stand unaided. Sally’s father is a freemason and got in touch with us to see if we could support the family in any way. Ted now has an ‘Upsee mobility harness’ that we part funded and allows him to walk…
