About Phab

 About Phab

The first Phab project began in 1957, and for nearly 60 years the charity has encouraged and supported children and adults with and without disabilities to make more of life together.

Phab enables children, young people and adults of all abilities to make more of life together - breaking down community barriers, reducing social isolation, and creating opportunities for disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy the same activities and challenges side by side. 

Local Phab Clubs 

150 Phab Clubs across England and Wales, with over 8,000 members, enable children, young people and adults with disabilities to get together with friends and family for all kinds of activities and social events.  Run by local volunteers and welcoming members whatever their ability, Phab Clubs make a real difference to the lives of all involved.   And regional and national events organised by Phab bring Clubs and their members together to share experiences, support each other and just have great fun.

Working with Schools and University students

Phab has a successful history of engaging with young people as volunteers.  Phab Clubs have been set up by students at Universities in Nottingham, Warwick, Birmingham, and Bristol, with Reading students supporting existing Phab Clubs locally.  And schools involved in setting up and running Phab Clubs or holiday projects run by their students include Westminster School, Merchant Taylors’ and St. Helen’s Schools in Middlesex, Aldenham School, and now Eton College where students are running a new Phab Club with students from Heathfield School in Ascot and Eden School in Slough.
