Charity risk barometer
Our Charity Risk Barometer 2019 uncovers key challenges facing charities, helps you capitalise on opportunities and reap major rewards.
Flying Scholarships for Disabled People (FSDP) change the lives of disabled people by inspiring them, building their confidence, self-esteem and aspirations through life-changing aviation experience including learning to fly. The charity offers scholarships to disabled people with a range of disabilities including Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Paraplegia and Amputation. Some of their scholars are born with their conditions and others have them as a result of an accident or contracting a disease.
The £1,000 donation from Ecclesiastical will help provide a scholarship for a disabled person to learn to fly. For all of FSDP’s scholars, being awarded a scholarship is a life changing experience. They speak of the confidence and self-belief it has given them and for many this is translated into starting new careers, new relationships, and taking on further challenges.
