Through the Roof

A registered charity that exists to transform lives through Jesus with disabled people.

The charity’s name comes from the Bible account where some men break through the roof to help their disabled friend meet Jesus (Luke 5). We recognise that every person is made in the image of God and has inherent value and worth, which includes people who have personal experience of disability – which we consider to include those with mobility impairments, learning disabilities or mental health issues, sight loss and those in the Deaf community.

Many of their dedicated trustees, staff team, volunteers and donors have personal experience of disability and seek to make a positive difference to the lives of disabled people and their families by:

  • Providing life-changing opportunities for disabled people
  • Equipping the Christian community to fully involve disabled people

We achieve these aims by delivering three activity programmes:

  • International mission
  • Church support
  • Holidays and groups
