LivabilityLiveability, United Kingdom, delivers disability services, community projects, education and training resources that promote inclusion and wellbeing. They also share expertise internationally, and are an enabling network of people, tackling barriers in society to make community livable.

Mind & SoulMind and Soul, United Kingdom, In many churches and health-care settings Christianity and mental health are kept deliberately separate. Mental health is rarely discussed in our churches and Christian spirituality is seen as having little to offer the world of psychology. Mind and Soul seeks to bridge this gap and provide a place of integration for orthodox Christianity and high quality psychology and psychiatry.
