Charities

In the UK:
The JoLt Trust (www.jolttrust.org.uk) is a tiny charity run on a totally voluntary basis by eight ordinary women who have families and careers of their own. For the past 21 years they have been taking disabled, dis-advantaged, abused and neglected young people on challenging month-long expeditions. By helping and supporting each other on their "Journey of a Lifetime", each youngster begins to grow in confidence and self-esteem. Having been "jolted" out of their old lives and with new-found confidence and pride in themselves, they are better able to cope with the many problems that lie ahead of them.


JoLt in action

In Australia:
Lion's Children's Mobility Foundation (www.lionsclubs.org.au/alcmf/index.htm) raises funds at the local level through individual Lions Clubs, and supplies orthopedic devices to children who would otherwise be incapable of walking. The principal device is the Hart Walker, a prosthesis enabling even severely damaged children to walk freely and thus extend their potential on life's journey.

Good Beginnings (www.goodbeginnings.net.au) is a national parenting program, helping to support parents through a range of services, with aim of giving every child a good beginning in life: the first steps can be got right there is reason for optimism for the whole life path.
