Support Us

Living with a disability presents huge daily challenges for young people and their families.

At the Chiltern Centre we help to alleviate some of these challenges and make life a little bit easier.

For us to support these young people and their families we must raise in excess of £200,000 each year to keep The Chiltern Centre open.

There are so many ways you can support us. It doesn’t matter if you have lots of time to give or very little, if you like to run events or prefer to attend them, you want to cycle round the world or support from your armchair.

Whatever you can give, your support will help us to make a difference.

Take a look below to find out about upcoming events and activities, and other ways that you can support us. Thank you for thinking of the Chiltern Centre.  


Each year we have to raise £200,000 in order to keep our doors open. Every penny that is donated helps us to get closer to that total, so thank you for your donation and for helping us to change the lives young people with disabilities in our community.


We have all been in awe of someone who has walked, run, cycled, swum, hopped, skipped or jumped great distances for charity. You could be one of those people! Doing an active challenge is not only a great way to get yourself fit and challenge yourself to achieve something amazing It is also a fabulous way to raise money for the Chiltern Centre and help to change the lives of children and young people with disabilities.

You can join one of our existing challenges, form your own team, set out on a challenge of your own or join an open team of challengers fundraising for different charities. We will provide you with all the support you need with your fundraising and to help you to publicise your challenge.
