A big thank you to all our Friends!
As a charity that depends on voluntary donations and funding from people and organisations, School for Parents is incredibly grateful to everyone that supports us. Without your help, we’d be unable to offer our wide range of educational and support services to disabled children and their families. Thank you.
Des Coleman has supported School For Parents since 2010. He is well-known for his work as a TV presenter, actor, musician, speaker and coach.
‘I was delighted to be asked to support School for Parents. What inspires me is that every day each of the children overcomes huge obstacles, learning to do things most of us take for granted – they don’t realise it, though; to them it’s all fun! And their parents are helped too, which is really important. I am fully behind the service and I want more people to know about the amazing work they do here in Nottingham.’
Des was instrumental in setting up interviews and filming at School for Parents for the regional BBC Inside Out programme shown in January 2014. You can read more about Des at his website www.descoleman.com

We were thrilled to be chosen as one of Graeme’s Benefit Year 2013 charities and even more delighted to receive a fabulous donation of £10,000!
“Being close personal friends of Darren and Victoria, the parents of beautiful little Roxy Caskey, I’ve seen first-hand what a remarkable difference Rutland House School for Parents makes to the lives of children who attend. I support this fantastic charity wholeheartedly and urge anyone out there to do the same.”
Support from charitable trusts, businesses and organisations
We’re lucky to receive a substantial chunk of our funding from corporate donations, fundraising and sponsorship. Other organisations support us by offering their services for free or at reduced rates, enabling us to channel more of our precious funds into our work.
Here are just a few of the local, regional and national businesses who’ve either supported us in the past or who support us today. Each of them makes such a big difference to the services we’re able to offer. Thank you.
