Coronavirus Appeal

Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity Coronavirus Appeal

Please support Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity through the coronavirus crisis and beyond.

2020 was the most challenging year in Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity’s history.

2021 is our 50th birthday but we are facing further significant loss of income due to the current lockdown.  And yet, despite all the restrictions and financial difficulties, we continue to support people with dyslexia who need our help more than ever at home, school and work.  

Please donate now to help us make it through the coming months - and into the next 50 years of dyslexia support.  Thank you.

We are appealing for your help again during this time of crisis.  

The current lockdown has again hit us hard financially as we’ve had to close our Centre and hubs for a second time, whilst still trying to recover from the impact of the first wave of the pandemic. 

It’s still impossible for our fundraising events to go ahead and other events, like the London Marathon and Royal Parks Half Marathon, from which we were due to benefit, are also affected.

We need your help so we can deliver our services to those who need them most.

Can you help us with a one-off donation?

Or a regular donation, large or small, which would qualify you to become a valuable Friend of Helen Arkell? 

People need our help more than ever.

Demand for our services is higher than ever.

Adapting to home-schooling or working at home is particularly challenging for people with dyslexia. It’s equally challenging for parents who are trying to support their dyslexic children, while isolated at home. 1 in 10 of these parents are dyslexic themselves.

Our brilliant team have risen to the challenge of carrying on providing excellent support and advice.  Specialist tuition to children and adults, consultations and courses for parents, and teacher training are now all available online or by video chat.

We understand that current circumstances are difficult for everyone, but if you are in a position to help us continue our valuable work, in our 50th anniversary and beyond, we would be hugely grateful. Please donate now.

Thank you so much!
