Bipolar UK is the national charity dedicated to supporting individuals with the much misunderstood and devastating condition of bipolar, their families and carers. We provide a range of services to enable people affected by bipolar and associated illnesses to take control of their lives. Each year we reach out and support over 65,000 individuals through our services and information/advice publications. We also work in partnership with research organisations and campaign for new developments to tackle key issues. Our services encompass a national network of self help groups, self management training courses, a mentoring scheme working with hospitals and psychiatric units, members services incorporating a dedicated Helpline, a youth service, workplace training and our vibrant e community, a web-based discussion forum for individuals affected by bipolar to share their views and experiences.

Armed Services

Blesma, The Limbless Veterans, is dedicated to assisting serving and ex-Service men and women who have suffered life-changing injury; limb loss or the loss of use of a limb, an eye or loss of sight or hearing and speech. We support these men and women in their communities throughout the UK and overseas. We work tirelessly for our Members when the conflicts that have affected their lives are no longer a focal point in the nation’s media. Since 1932, we have been the only national Service charity that supports limbless veterans, and their families, for the duration of their lives. Our Members range from the youngest amputee veterans to those who fought in WWII, some having lived with limb loss for more than half a century. Modern medicine transforms the physical injury, but it is a complicated process to treat the emotional trauma and related lifelong health problems. Blesma provides a network where Members not only enjoy support from our professional Welfare Team, but where they have the opportunity to engage with others who have similar injuries and backgrounds to themselves, building an important fellowship with each other to overcome everyday battles.

Bliss exists to give every baby born premature or sick in the UK the best chance of survival and quality of life. We champion their right to receive the best care by supporting families, campaigning for change and supporting professionals, and enabling life-changing research. Bliss was founded in 1979 by a group of concerned parents who discovered that no hospital had all the equipment nor the trained staff it needed to safely care for premature and sick babies. Determined to do something, these volunteers formed a charity to give vulnerable babies the care they deserve. 40 years later Bliss has grown into the leading UK charity for the 100,000 babies born needing neonatal care every year. Our vision Bliss’ vision is that every baby born premature or sick in the UK has the best chance of survival and quality of life.
