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.
Churches for All
Churches for All is a network of UK Christian disability-engaged organisations.
The Churches for All partners have a breadth of experience and depth of knowledge on disability issues – challenging and enabling churches to fully include disabled people.
Our aim is to help churches create and sustain an environment where disabled people can participate fully in church life for the benefit of all. Disabled people are involved in the leadership of Churches for All and many of its partner organisations.
Together, we strive to equip churches to reach towards their full potential by truly including disabled people. We encourage both church leaders and disabled people to work together to bring about full inclusivity – where disabled people are not just welcomed but fully included within every aspect of church life.
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.
European Disability Network
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.
The Evangelical Alliance is made up of hundreds of organisations, thousands of churches and tens of thousands of individuals, joined together for the sake of the gospel. Representing our members since 1846, the Evangelical Alliance is the oldest and largest evangelical unity movement in the UK.
United in mission and voice, we exist to serve and strengthen the work of the church in our communities and throughout society. Highlighting the significant opportunities and challenges facing the church today, we work together to resource Christians so that they are able to act upon their faith in Jesus, to speak up for the gospel, justice and freedom in their areas of influence.
Working across the UK, with offices in London, Cardiff, Glasgow and Belfast, our members come together from across denominations, locations, age groups and ethnicities, all sharing a passion to know Jesus and make Him known.
Our vision is for every church in England and Wales to welcome adults with learning disabilities so that they can know Jesus and grow in him
