70 million people globally need a wheelchair. The majority of these people live in poverty, vulnerable and marginalised. Our task is huge and we won’t succeed alone. It is only by working in partnership, collaborating and seeking innovative global solutions that we will increase the number of people receiving the right wheelchair in the right way.

The good news is that we have already made massive strides forwards, and have worked with the likes of the World Health Organization to initiate change on a global scale. But what sets us apart is the practical change we are also instigating at a local level on a daily basis, which is having a direct impact on the individuals who need our support right now. Individuals like Sanimaya (pictured), who is now able to focus on her own business venture selling fresh produce.

This dual approach of influencing the international development sector, while delivering projects in the field, means we have the best chance of success. And with your support we can achieve even more.

Become a Motivation Guardian

Whether you’re a long term supporter or new to Motivation we would like to invite you to join a special group of people who are dedicated to improving the quality of life of disabled people around the world.

Launching in our 25th anniversary year, Motivation Guardians are invited to pledge a minimum annual donation of £5,000 over a suggested three year period. As a Motivation Guardian you'll be in the company of like-minded people, who understand the power of mobility and the freedom it can bring, and together your donations and support will transform the lives of disabled people living on the margins of society in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Our promise to you. We will:

  • use and invest your donations wisely, focusing on the greatest need where we can make the most impact
  • work with you to maximise how your donation is spent and connect you with the areas of work that you are most passionate about – whether that’s the design of our wheelchairs, our practical field work, or our advocacy

As a Motivation Guardian, you will:

  • have access to a dedicated team member, who will respond to your enquiries and keep you updated with news
  • be invited to events with fellow Motivation Guardians
  • have access to and meet Motivation’s Co-Founder and President David Constantine MBE
  • receive a personalised annual update on our work and Impact Report
  • receive quarterly newsletters

Where possible we would also like to be able to offer Guardians the chance to visit some of our projects overseas, assuming costs are covered and our overseas teams have the capacity to accommodate such trips without activities being disrupted.

Join us as we tackle the next 25 years

We have solutions, but we need investment and your support. Please join us and make your commitment to the world’s disabled people by becoming a Motivation Guardian. Call our Head of Fundraising Joanna Hall today on 0117 9 660 398 to discuss how you can get involved.
