Framework Housing Association

Registered Charity Number: 1060941

Framework is Nottinghamshire’s leading homelessness charity. We work to tackle homelessness across the county, offering housing, support and training to nearly 7,000 people each year: from those fleeing abuse and domestic violence to care leavers, rough sleepers, those fighting addiction and people with enduring mental health problems. 

For a homeless person, getting a secure roof over their head is a crucial first step – finding somewhere that is safe, dry and warm. However, to tackle homelessness effectively it is not sufficient simply to put a roof over someone’s head, and our work does not stop there. The underlying economic, social, medical and emotional circumstances which contributed to an individual’s situation must also be addressed: we passionately believe that having someone who cares and can offer appropriate support is equally important in helping people on the journey from homelessness to independent living.

Medecins Sans Frontieres

Registered Charity Number: 1026588

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural disasters. MSF combines the provision of emergency medical care with a commitment to speaking out about the suffering people endure and the obstacles encountered in providing assistance.

MSF is a not-for-profit organisation that was founded by doctors and journalists in 1971. Today, MSF is a worldwide movement with 19 national offices and an international coordination office in Geneva, Switzerland.

MSF’s core work is in providing emergency medical assistance to the most vulnerable people in crisis due to armed conflict. MSF also provides medical care to help people survive in catastrophic situations where communities and health structures may be overwhelmed. MSF provides assistance during epidemics, following natural disasters, and to people who are excluded from healthcare.

When MSF witnesses serious acts of violence against or neglect of individuals or groups, we may speak out publicly based on eyewitness accounts, medical data and experience. We also give a voice to those who have witnessed such acts .

MSF is an independent and self-governed organisation. Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of neutrality and impartiality. MSF offers assistance to people based only on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.

MSF strives to ensure that it has the power to evaluate medical needs freely, to access populations without restriction and to control the aid it provides directly, giving priority to those in most grave danger. MSF does not take sides in armed conflict and demands unhindered access to patients and the space it needs to carry out emergency medical interventions. In addition MSF only accepts private donations and never accepts funds from parties directly involved in any conflict or medical emergency that MSF is responding to."

Medical Engineering Resource Unit (MERU)

Registered Charity Number: 269804

MERU aims to be a centre of expertise on sources of assistive technology for children, both designing and manufacturing the highest quality of innovative aids and providing advice on other sources of equipment and places they can turn to for funding for MERU equipment. 

We also want to conduct research into early years mobility and the development of children with disabilities. This work will be shared and disseminated via publications, conferences, on the MERU website and through users of MERU’s services who should also be encouraged to take an active part in the management of the charity.

All equipment will continue to be manufactured to the highest possible standards and will be compliant with the latest legislation in this field. 

Custom made products for severely disabled children will always be the core activity at MERU, providing innovative solutions when no suitable commercial equipment is available. Our bespoke design & manufacturing service will continue to be free of charge to individual children and families, though any donations or contribution towards the cost will be gratefully accepted in order to help further children. Other organisations, charities and the public sector will be charged a reasonable contribution towards the cost of services – however no child will be denied help on the grounds of cost. 

To fully achieve these aims MERU will need to increase its funding and become financially stable by utilising a mix of funding opportunities including contracts with the NHS and local authorities, grant funding and donations from the public. MERU will also begin replicating some of its bespoke designs to provide a range of high quality, low cost enabling products which are available immediately off the shelf. 

However, before MERU can develop any further we first need to find new premises including offices, workshops, storage and space to assess children on site. Ideally a new building should also have spare capacity in order to leave room for expansion, but initially any spare space could be rented to similar organisations.

Once funding and accommodation are secure MERU hopes to gradually expand the staff team to include more engineers, volunteers and students supported by a small admin team and a full time occupational therapist, and to explore methods of training the next generation of engineers.

Monty's Corner

The biggest sorrow for parents is to see their child in pain. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, everything changes in life. So much pain in every way. The world is not the same anymore.

We know because we have been there.

Therefore, we believe that prevention is better than dealing with cancer. We believe that research in prevention is an absolute must. 

No more pain.

Rainforest Concern

Registered Charity Number: 1028947

Rainforest Concern was established in 1993 to protect threatened natural habitats, the biodiversity they contain and the indigenous people who still depend on them for their survival. At present the organisation has 19 conservation projects in 12 countries: Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Suriname, Costa Rica, Panama, India, Romania, Sri Lanka and Uganda. We work closely with local conservation organisations in these countries to protect rainforests. 

Central to Rainforest Concern’s philosophy is the establishment of strong partnerships with small yet dynamic organisations in the countries where it operates. Such long-term partnerships have repeatedly shown to result in the continued success of projects.


Our conservation work falls into four categories:

- Direct conservation involving the protection and management of forested land to create protected reserves. This sometimes includes the purchase of land, usually in the name of the local organisation or the local communities. Particular emphasis is placed on the creation of forest ‘corridors’ that connect existing protected areas thereby avoiding the risk of fragmentation. This greatly assists the effectiveness of these reserves by enabling species to move freely from one to another. Reforestation of cleared areas of forest with native tree species also falls into this category.

- Programmes of alternative income generation, health and education are developed with the local communities living near the projects. These are designed to reduce the negative human impact on forests arising through, for example, cattle ranching and subsistence farming. Examples of these projects include sustainable small-scale horticulture (for example cultivation of shade grown coffee), the production of handicrafts and responsible ecotourism.

- Research in biodiversity is encouraged. Scientists and students from national and international universities have undertaken and continue to undertake research at several of our projects.

- We also have well established volunteer programmes. These include groups of gap year students as well as mature volunteers who work on projects that include tree planting, trail maintenance and data collection. 

In the UK

Rainforest Concern operates an 'acre sponsorship' programme to encourage the public to become directly involved in rainforest conservation. The £25 per half acre requested, goes towards purchase and protection of rainforest at one of our projects.

Pre-adoption visits are carried out for all animals to assess the suitability of potential new homes. 
We do not put any animal to sleep unless it is suffering physically, or psychologically, and the damage is irreparable, or in the case of dogs, where they display serious aggression problems and therefore cannot responsibly be rehomed.
We successfully re-home a number of elderly animals, and animals with ongoing health and/or behavioural problems.

We are heavily dependant on individual donations and our own fundraising activities to support our adoption programme.
