The first Phab project began in 1957, and for over 60 years the charity has inspired and supported disabled and non-disabled children, young people and adults to make more of life together
Phab enables people 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. This is achieved through:
- A network of 140 Phab Clubs across England and Wales for children, young people and adults with disabilities, providing regular social activities and friendship for 8,000 members
- Our annual programme of challenging and exciting Inclusive Living Experience Residential Projects for disabled or disadvantaged children and young adults
- Our work with schools and universities to develop Phab Clubs and holiday projects run by students
- Regional and national events where Clubs and members can enjoy good company along with training workshops, fun activities and the opportunity to learn from and support each other
- Two wheelchair accessible holiday homes in Dorset for families and friends to enjoy a break away together, knowing all they need will be in place for them when they arrive

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,
Phab is working closely with schools to develop new Phab Clubs on site, hosted by students for their guests with the support of the school staff.
This is part of a long-term programme to give many more disabled people the opportunity for regular social activities and friendship and widening the horizons of guests and hosts alike - fulfilling Phab’s aim of enabling people who are disabled and non-disabled to make more of life together.
We are proud to be involved in the Schools that have set up and run Phab Clubs or holiday projects run by their students include Westminster School, Merchant Taylors’ and St. Helen’s Schools in Middlesex, Aldenham School, and Eton College where students are running a new Phab Club with students from Heathfield School in Ascot and Eden School in Slough.
