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
