SHIELDED SUPERHEROES EBOOK

Our ebook is FREE to all. If you would like a copy please email info@shieldus.net

Our shielded superheroes e-book is being used in 100s of primary and pre schools across the UK. Shielded superheroes explains how important it is to keep those with invisible conditions safe. 

It is important that we teach future generations to be mindful and understanding about invisible illness and that chronic health conditions cannot always be seen.

Thousands of children and their families live with these conditions. The idea of the book is that those with invisible conditions are shielded superheroes - their power is that their illness is invisible. Others can become protector heroes by helping to keep these shielded superheroes safe by; washing their hands, covering their mouths and noses when they sneeze and cough, ensuring they give shielded superhero adults the space they need.

Together let's ensure that those with chronic health conditions are championed by future generations and that the stigma of having a disability or condition is lost forever.

Shielded superhero badges and protector hero badges are available for school settings and individuals via this website.

930 MILE RELAY FUNDRAISER

2.2 million people in the UK were identified as clinically extremely vulnerable and asked to shield in 2020.

If all of them were to hold hands they would span 930 miles - the distance from London to Austria!

Help us raise awareness and vital funds so we can continue to provide support for our counselling services and expand the work we do. There is so much work to be done!

Run, walk or cycle 22.2 miles over 7 days and ask people to sponsor you. If you think you can do more you can opt to do double over 14 days so 44.4 miles.

We will be running a daily total so that people can input the miles they have done that day, with the option for people to send photos and videos of themselves taking part. Don't forget you can do this from home you can walk round your garden or even up and down your stairs! Lets get healthy, let's get motivated and let's raise awareness!

Anyone that wants to take part click on the button below to go to our Facebook page and sent us a message or comment on one of the relay fundraiser posts and we will send you the link so you can set up a justgiving page. We will also send you a free shieldus t-shirt that you can wear whilst taking part in the challenge.

Stronger together!!

Testimonials

Ordered 2 badges, one for my grandad with COPD and another for my father who had a heart transplant. They came the next day and are great quality and even included an upfliting message. The badges will really help them feel less anxious when going out. What a fabulous idea!! Thank you. 

Michaela, Essex.

Thank you for my fab t-shirt and badge :) I will be able to wear my badge when I go back to work in August. 

Nicola.

Ordered twice everything arrives quickly. The badges are great, we ordered two one for the front and back of my daughters backpack and a face mask that is a brilliant fit and lovely soft material. Also the lovely inspirational quotes that were inside the orders are a great added touch, made me feel quite emotional. Thank you very much.
