Stolen Minibus from a Day Centre for people with disabilities
The Garwood Foundation, a south-London charity working with people living with disabilities, had a minibus stolen in July 2023.
The minibus is essential as a means of transport for wheelchair users, people who find it very difficult to use public transport due to the severity of their disabilities.
The stolen minibus used to take service users to our activity centre, as well as on outings and to medical appointments.
Our goal is to purchase a fully equipped minibus that can cater to the unique needs of people with disabilities.
With your support, we can ensure access to essential services and enable greater participation in many aspects of everyday living.
