Additional Needs Alliance
Helping churches to include, support, create places of belonging for, and spiritually grow children, young people and young adults with additional needs or disabilities. Among our Members are many individuals and organisations that offer a range of excellent services and resources to assist churches and other groups working in this area to make a real difference for their community.
Through the Roof
Through the Roof seeks to positively influence church and society. We act primarily as a catalyst for change, conveying a prophetic message where disabled people and others who have experience of disability – which we consider to include those with mobility impairments, learning disabilities or mental health issues, sight loss and those in the Deaf community – are valued equally, fully included, and able to contribute their gifts and skills.
In Europe, 75 to 100 million people have a disability. This is more than 10% of the population. They have received legal recognition. Since the start of this century, several Christian organizations who work with people with disabilities have formed a network.
