“QEF are delighted to have been chosen as Unum's charity partner for 2022-23 and are really excited about the difference this partnership can make to the lives of the people we support. Our services can be life-transforming for disabled people; helping individuals to become more independently mobile, develop key life skills or rebuild core skills such as walking and talking after an acquired brain injury or other neurological condition.
