National Star is a charity committed to supporting young people with complex physical and learning disabilities. The young people we support have high personal care, therapy, emotional and medical support needs, along with a range of disabilities.  We have been depended on for over 50 years by young people with disabilities and their families, and today we are needed more than ever. 


Remarkable medical and technological advances give young people with ever more severe disabilities and injuries the chance of a life. More premature babies are surviving major illness and accidents, but living with increasingly complex and profound disabilities. 

We support young people from across the UK at our main residential base in Ullenwood, Gloucestershire along with day students from Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties. We also have day education provision in Wales and Hereford, long-term living accommodation in Cheltenham, Gloucester, Malvern and Hereford, and provide a range of work-based programs and independent travel training in several locations across England and Wales. 

Get involved with fundraising:  All donations will help to ensure National Star has the right specialist facilities, resources and equipment that will enable young people with disabilities to progress, grow and flourish.
