Dyspraxia/DCD, Vulnerability and the Criminal Justice system
The Dyspraxia Foundation is a country Wide charity, founded in 1987 by two mothers.
Today the Foundation, with its headquarters in Hitchin, answers approximately 10,000 enquiries and distributes more than 20,000 leaflets about the condition, annually. The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of Dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education.
The Foundation is run by fewer than six full-time equivalent paid staff and is supported extensively by volunteers. Its work is funded entirely by voluntary donation and membership subscriptions.
