Cover Story:

Her Royal Highness The

Countess of Wessex has

been the Patron of

Disability Initiative since

2003. A regular visitor,

her support and

encouragement has had

an incredible impact on all

involved. She takes a

keen interest in each and

every person and all

aspects of work.

Our President Bill Biddell,

who is also the Vice Lord

Left Tennant of Surrey.

Bill became DI’s president

in 2001. He is an

incredible support with all

aspects of the charity.

Back Cover Story:

“I’m 43 and am a qualified

electric and heating engineer and

plumber and also an avid

motorcyclist! In October 2006, I

had the misfortune of falling off

my motorbike and head-butting a

crash barrier sustaining severe

head, face and arm injuries and

had to have my heart “jump

started” twice in A&E and spent a

week in intensive care. I was

referred to DI and joined the

Cognitive Skills Group which

enabled me to understand the

impact of having a brain injury

and to overcome some of the

specific problems encountered on

a day-to-day basis. DI has helped

me improve my cognitive skills

and develop new IT skills. I have

found DI invaluable and my wife

says I am now much easier to

live with as a result!”

MESSAGE FROM OUR

CHIEF EXECUTIVE

Our accomplishments throughout

2017 have been awesome and we’ve

shared a great number of

experiences.

“Inspirational, exciting

and challenging are just a

few of the many words

that sum up 2017 for DI.”

Under the direction of Man Made

films we had such fun making

several promotional films for the

website.

We worked with corporates including

CISCO and Puppet, creating fully

immersive corporate days which

concentrated on unconscious bias

and realising disability training.

We are lucky enough to have the

prospect of widening our reach and

further developing partnerships that

will enable us to continue to make a

positive difference to our clients, their

families and the community itself.

Overall, we are looking forward

to a very exciting 2018!

We also forged deeper

relationships and collaborations

with many organisations and

individuals.

The tremendous fundraising has

had a significant impact and

every single penny goes towards

services to benefit our clients

and our carers.

clients experiences.

buy new equipment, including a Genie

wheelchair. It has also facilitated the

improvement of our Camberley Building

a break from caring at our carers

evenings.

All of which has had hugely positive and

direct impact on the overall wellbeing of

the carers, clients, staff and community.

We would like to extend our

eternal gratitude to all our

runners, corporate sponsors,

staff, clients, families and

everyday supporters.

FINANCIAL

STATEMENT

OVERVIEW

All our information disclosed here and presented

as part of 2017 Financial Statement are presented

by both the Financial Reporting Standard 102 (FRS

102) and the Accounting and Reporting by

Charities: Statement of Recommended Practice.

INCOME

We raise the majority of our income through

Fundraising and donations from our close

partnerships. A large amount of our income from

2017 came from fundraising activities like the

motomed challenge that raised around £1,100 as

well as other activities like the Swinely Golf day

and the 10k Run that raises a large sum of over

£5000.

Fee Income is our main source of income that

enables the day to day running of our Camberley

Resource Centre. The diagram below shows a

breakdown of our client sources.

EXPENDITURE ON CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES

Expenditure has been confined to that which

improves the facilities of the centre and enhances

operational effectiveness.

100% of the income raised goes to improving

client care and facilities. This year, we were able

to use the funds raised from the 10k Run and

other support to purchase our Genie wheelchair

that has hugely psychological and physiological

benefits for our clients.

Additionally, as a result of a charitable donation

from the Ratcliff Trust given to us as part of the

Swinley Golf Fundraiser, we were able to offer

additional non-contact boxing services to our

clients. This facility is hugely popular with our

clients and has numerous health Benefits.

Registered Charity Number: 1049002

Registered Company Number: 3029077

NET ASSETS

Our consolidated net assets have increased this

year, reflecting a surplus. Therefore

demonstrating our relatively strong financial

position, This can mainly be attributed to the

strong fixed asset base of the group.

RESERVES POLICY

Our reserves policy aims to ensure that we hold

sufficient funds to be able to mitigate the

financial impact of events that lead to a shortfall

in income or unplanned expenditure.

PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

• Invest in a changing society.

• Broaden our horizons.

Our Trustees have been busy developing a

strategy and preparing for future revolutionary

changes in the delivery of Health and Social Care

and the support given to clients who suffer from

chronic conditions. This is something specifically

relevant to us as if you look at a breakdown of

our clients by diagnosis you can see how many

suffer with chronic and life changing conditions.

FIVE YEAR FUTURE GOAL

As a result, our Trustees have set out a clear

plan for the Next 5 Years that:

• Enables us to deliver this service to a wider

scope of individuals in need.

• As well as making our service more efficient

in a financially sustainable way.
