For over 30 years, ADD International has been supporting some of the world’s most remarkable disability activists working on the front line of discrimination. We’ve stood alongside the disability movement as it has made huge strides towards tackling stigma, changing laws and improving the quality of life of disabled people worldwide.
Can you help support future generations of disability activists?
"I’m incredibly proud of what has been achieved in the space of a generation, but it’s terribly important to be clear that there is still a way to go. As allies to disability activists in Africa and Asia we have to be very clear that the struggle for equality is far from won. We need to continue to be determinedly on their sides and show that they have the allies they need as they go forward in the future. None of this is easily won, none of this is cosy or simple. But do I see young disability activists, starting out today, really making their point? Yes, I do. Do I see them supported by allies? Yes, I do, particularly if organisations like ADD International continue to thrive and be around."

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the easiest ways to give.
During our lives we devote time, energy and money to the causes we care about. Many people pledge a gift in their Will to ensure that this work can continue long into the future. Writing or amending a Will can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be. It can be one of the most empowering things you ever do. It's a chance for you to ensure the things most important to you in life, continue to be supported and cared for. We understand that family and loved ones will always take priority – remembering a charity in your will doesn’t mean excluding others. Nor does it mean that it should large amounts of money. A small gift can make a very real difference.
To know more about how to leave a gift in your Will, download our simple guide, which takes you through all the steps you need to take. You can then take this to a solicitor who will help you write your Will.
If you have already written your Will, but would like to change it to include a gift to ADD International, you can download and complete a Codicil form and ask your solicitor to make the necessary amendments. It's that simple!
