Phab does not receive any statutory funding and we apply each year to a variety of Charitable Trusts and grant-giving organisations to help us carry out our work. We are grateful to those funders that have generously supported Phab over recent years, including:
The Edward Gostling Foundation (formerly the ACT Foundation) which has supported our Inclusive Living Experience Residential Projects for a number of years has generously invited Phab to become a Charity Partner and is supporting delivery of a new Transition Plus Project for disabled young people aged 18 to 25.
And we were thrilled to benefit from a BBC Lifeline Appeal in 2018, with a film presented by Phab's President Anita Dobson and featuring Phab Club Members and children and young people on our holiday projects. Not only did this raise much needed funds for Phab but the film was viewed by nearly one million people, raising our profile to potential members, families, volunteers and supporters! You can see Phab's film here.

We were very impressed and just blown away by the Phab project. (Charitable Trust officers visiting our ILX Project in the New Forest)
