Dyspraxia Foundation Charity Profile

The Dyspraxia Foundation is a country Wide charity, founded in 1987 as the Dyspraxia Trust by two mothers who met at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. After being told that their children had Dyspraxia they were astonished and dismayed to discover that no facilities existed to help or inform parents and children with the condition. They decided to form their own group to help others to help themselves.

From the very beginning they encouraged others to join the group and then to set up their own local sub-groups to support other parents and sufferers of Dyspraxia in their own local area, but in the name of the Trust. In 1996 the charity changed its name to the Dyspraxia Foundation and this is what it is know as today.

Today the Foundation, with its head quarters in Hitchin, answers approximately 10,000 enquiries and distributes more then 20,000 leaflets about the condition, annually. The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of Dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education and encourages its local groups to do the same. It continues to encourage the smaller local groups to thrive and develop their own ideas and to distribute information and fund raise for themselves.
