Chief executive tells us how Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People helps to increase the independence of disabled people, not just in Surrey but across the UK
Tell us a bit about the charity… Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People – or QEF for short – is a family of charities that offer services and products for people with disabilities to help them maximise their independence. We’re based in Leatherhead, but people from all over the UK use our services. The Queen Mother helped to set up the charity that became QEF in the 1930s.
What’s the most important thing that’s been achieved so far? Every single time we help someone, that’s important. Looking to the future our most important achievement will be our new Care and Rehabilitation Centre, which will provide a state of the art centre for neurorehabilitation, as well as the very best accommodation.
