Description

We are a registered national disability charity based in Surrey with more than 80 years’ experience of developing innovative services which enable and support people to increase independence and improve opportunities for life. QEF helps people with complex disabilities to achieve their goals in life.

We work with children and adults with physical and learning disabilities or acquired brain injuries, whether it’s learning everyday life skills, rebuilding a life affected by brain injury, or acquiring the skills to drive a specially adapted car, we support them to fulfil their potential.

We are determined to provide practical, caring and innovative solutions to enable people, whatever their disability, to live their lives to the fullest extent possible.
