Jewish Blind & Disabled (JBD)
Bittacy Hill, Mill Hill East
One in five people in the UK faces a diagnosis of disability and someone goes blind every hour, and Jewish Blind & Disabled is the only charity in the Jewish community dedicated to enabling people in this position, from the age of eighteen upwards, to live independently with the dignity and choice that are so easy for others to take for granted. This is not only through their specially designed developments of state-of-the-art mobility apartments with 24/7 support from their own resident house managers, but also through their new Independent Living Advisory Service for those living out in the wider community.
As an independent charity that does not receive any government funding, Jewish Blind & Disabled is very grateful for your support.

Most of us will eventually face the trauma of hearing loss – or already have a loved one who is.
With your help, we can:
· Be an ongoing support and inspiration to families – right from the devastating diagnosis of their baby’s deafness.
· Rescue older people living in care homes from isolation and loneliness and enable them to chat, join in activities and enjoy their final years
· Ensure vulnerable deaf and deafblind people are given lifelong care and support.
For over 65 years JDA has been a specialist community lifeline, enabling people living with deafness to cope with whatever challenges life brings. We receive no statutory funding and depend on legacies and donations to sustain our wide range of services for the Jewish community and beyond.

For 120 years, JNF UK has played an integral part in Israel’s development, strengthening every area of Israeli life – from investing in infrastructure projects and employment opportunities to empowering the less able and underprivileged. We have built educational institutions, helped youth programmes, provided for people with special needs and brought life to remote desert towns. None of this would be possible without the ongoing support of the Jewish community for both Israel and JNF UK.
In this generation, Jewish continuity, engagement and commitment cannot be taken for granted. Studies have shown that immersive Jewish educational experiences have enduring impact on the life choices of young people.
