Our 6,000 staff and 6,500 volunteers support more than 30,000 individuals in the UK and 15 countries in Africa and Asia. Between us we ensure the smooth running and effective delivery of care homes, support services, programmes, campaigns and more.
Her Majesty the Queen has been our patron since 1980. Since then, Her Majesty has played an influential role in the work that we do.
Our vice presidents are former trustees or long-standing supporters of the charity who continue to support our work through their philanthropy, and through active community engagement around our services.
