About Our Charity

We Try To Make The World A Better Place

Founded over forty years ago, the Ruth Dickson Trust has been working hard to help individuals in our area. Applications normally come to us when all the usual avenues of support have drawn a blank and there’s nowhere else for people to turn to. Our work is dedicated to funding and delivering charitable services to people with disabilities in Staffordshire, and we strive to inspire and improve the lives of those who need assistance. Get in touch to learn how you can make a difference.

How We Help

Just some of the many things we do

Home Improvements

It's so easy to take things for granted around us today but for people with disabilities, a frustrating world of inaccessibility and difficulty opens up and sometimes despite the best efforts of various agencies, people need a little more help. That's where we've been able to step in and help with making things that little bit easier around the home.

Respite Care

Everyone needs a change of scenery and a break sometime. Caring for someone can be just as demanding as being disabled and even an hour's break can be a godsend for everyone involved. For someone disabled it can open up new horizons and lead to a better outlook on life and that's where we've been able to help make lives that little bit better with some respite care.

Disability Aids

Our main aim is to help people in a small way make their lives better in a big way and no more so than in the world of aids for the disabled. Even the simplest of things can make such a major difference to someone's quality of life but sometimes a little more help is needed and that's where we've been able make someone's life that little bit more comfortable.
