The Carningli Trust, established in 1985, is a permanent residential community for young people with mental handicaps, aged between 18 and 35. The trust owns a nine-acre smallholding in West Wales. It keeps a variety of animals and has a walled garden, a greenhouse, a workshop, a weavery, a pottery and a crafts room. The trust aims to provide a secure base to encourage community members to develop. The conversion of the farm's barn and stables - to provide more accommodation and educational and therapeutic facilities - is nearly complete. The trust needs to raise about pounds 30,000 to pay off the mortgage.

Calder Valley Club organises social activities, classes, outings, trips, lunches and constant care from qualified staff for physically handicapped people living in Calderdale. At present the club is restricted to offering facilities to 50 people for four days a week: it provides a meeting place for people with disabilities where they can learn new skills. The club is restoring and specially adapting a redundant mill in Hebden Bridge, so that it can increase its membership and the range of the programmes it offers. It needs pounds 200,000 to complete building work.
Calder Valley Club, 2 High Street, Blackshaw Head, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire HX7 7HY, telephone 0422 844708.
