Living Behind The Mask Charity Organisation

Unveiling the Mask 

Why Us ?

Here at Living Behind The Mask (#LBTM), we aim to make life more engaging and fun for those that feel like they otherwise cannot integrate into normal society. We are trying to create a Community where people, who feel otherwise excluded from normal society/ activities, can come and be themselves, feel included and be around like minded people. We want people to have things to do and places to go so that they have activities and events to look forward to going to and doing a variety of different things, instead of being stuck inside and feeling excluded and lonely because of their condition.


Our Story

The idea of the charity came to me after i had a very trying couple of years with my health... I had been in serious need of the like minded company that would know and understand what i was going through. My family are very supportive, understanding, involved and do their best to make my bad days tolerable, however i would occasionally want to be around people like myself. And also i felt that my family also needed the relief of talking to people and families that were going through and dealing with looking after a loved one and sometimes didn't know or understand how best to help their loved one through things they were dealing with.

At Living Behind The Mask Charity Organisation, a registered charity, we are focused on two main purposes:- 

1. Promoting social inclusion for the public benefit by preventing people from becoming socially excluded due to disabilities including but not limited to:- Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Anxiety Disorders, AD(H)D, AIDS/HIV, Allergies (inc Food), Arachnoiditis.  Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Epilepsy, Depression, Crohn’s disease, Cancer, Lymphedema, Asthma, Bipolar Disorder, Brain Injuries, Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Coeliac Disease, Lyme Disease, ME, Metabolic Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Myasthenia Gravis, Narcolepsy, Personality Disorders, Psychiatric Disabilities, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Repetitive Stress Injuries, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Schizophrenia, Sclerodarma, Sjogren's Syndrome, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome,Lactose Intolerance, Interstitial Cystitis, Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome, Hypoglycemia, Hyperhidrosis, Fructose Malabsorption, Endometriosis, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Diabetes,Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and assisting them to integrate into society. 

2. To advance the education of the public in all areas relating to disabilities including but not limited to all the listed above.

Many people living with a physical, hidden disability or mental challenges are still able to be active in their hobbies, work and be active in sports. Not every disability is debilitating and crippling or will stop people from carrying out their daily duties, but that doesn't mean that they are good and well. it just means that they are managing to be strong and brave and soldier on with life. On the other hand, some struggle just to get through their day at work or even at home, and some cannot work at all. But they are still not recognised to have disabilities and people often misunderstand their suffering & struggles and that is simply a real shame and a massive disappointment, which is why we are aiming to educate the general public and raise awareness to these issues.
