At the end of last year Disability Rights UK was very happy to learn that we had been chosen to receive a donation from The Lloyd’s of London Foundation, thanks to our wonderful trustee Shelley Simmonds, who nominated us (about whom more below).

The Foundation 'Is proud to support causes that are close to the hearts of our people in the Lloyd’s Corporation and in the Lloyd’s market. We know our colleagues across the market dedicate their time and efforts to volunteer and fundraise for charities they are passionate about – so we want to help them do that and celebrate the people who have gone above and beyond for their chosen charities.'

Shelley Simmonds has a very valuable perspective. Not only is she the mother and carer of a disabled son, she is also a Trustee of Disability Rights UK. This led her to apply to the Foundation, knowing the great work that Disability Rights UK does with Disabled people of all ages. Shelley says :

"I was delighted to be announced as a winner of the Lloyd's Market Charity Awards. I know first hand how valuable the work of Disability Rights UK is and this funding will be put to good use in the continued fight to make society a more inclusive one"

Disability Rights UK CEO Kamran Mallick says 'We really appreciate the support of The LLoyd's of London Foundation of commitment to human rights and equality for all Disabled people in the UK.'
