Christmas & New Year Break

BuDS will be having a break over Christmas. Everyone in the charity has worked so hard all year and we are encouraging all our Trustees, staff and volunteers to have a proper rest.

The break will begin from Saturday 18th December until we return in 2022 on Tuesday 4th January.

During this period, messages, e-mails, social media comments and other enquiries will not be routinely answered, although we will still pick up anything which is genuinely urgent or essential. Please respect our holiday break period and wait until 4 January to get in touch with us if you can.

Disabled People in Bucks – Healthy Lifestyles

Buckinghamshire Council is reviewing how it helps people in Bucks have healthier lifestyles, such as exercising more or eating a better diet. We want the Council to understand how hard it can be for disabled people to change their lifestyle. We want to persuade them to provide the right services to help disabled people. We’ve set up our own poll so that disabled people can have their own voice.

We would be really grateful if you could answer this poll and help us collect the information we need to change the Council’s mind. It takes only a few minutes and it’s completely anonymous, so we won’t know who has replied. Parents and carers can answer for their children or people they look after.

Thank you for your help – together we can make Bucks a better place for everyone, including disabled people.
