Community

The idea behind this Community is to gather together the names and websites of people who use crafting, making and baking to support, or encourage open discussion of, physical and mental disabilities and/or donate to charity. A sort of Directory of websites with a heart.

Inclusion in the list will be the result of personal suggestion or recommendation and no one on the list received any payment, gratuity or other remuneration other than a link to their website.

If you know of anyone or any organisation whose name could be added to the community, please contact us with a brief description of what they do and how they help. We hope that over time the list will grow and help support people everywhere who struggle with long term physical and mental health issues.
