The WESC Foundation is a specialist day and residential centre offering a unique experience for children, young people and adults with visual impairment, including complex needs.
The children and young people are aged 4 – 25 and are from across the UK. Many of the children and young people have additional needs such as cerebral palsy and autism, sadly some have life limiting illnesses too.
The WESC Foundation team is made up over 300 specialist staff, made up of nurses, therapists, teachers, enablers and therapists.
We work together throughout the day and night to support the children and young people to reach their full potential, no matter what challenges they face.
You can visit our website at www.wescfoundation.ac.uk where you can view our inspiring short video which highlights and explains more about the support provided in our school, college, outreach services and research department.
We rely on the generosity of people like you to help us make what seems impossible, possible.
This is our 175 anniversary year so we have lots of fun fundraising planned! We hope you’ll get involved.

Princesshay Shopping Centre would like to help the MS Society to raise vital awareness of multiple sclerosis before their 60th anniversary in 2013. 100,000 people have been diagnosed with MS in the UK and it affects around 600,000 people including family, friends and carers. The MS Society helps people with MS to better understand and manage their condition and assists them through the difficult times. There are 300 branches of the MS Society across the UK that people can turn to for advice and our fundraising will go toward providing local support as well as vital research into MS.
There is real hope that a cure for MS will be found in our lifetime and potential new MS treatments will be developed in the next 10-15 years – The Princesshay Shopping Centre will be a part of making this happen.
For more information, please visit the MS Society website.
