Giving You Back YOUR Life

The Charity Commission

The Charity Commission's web siteWe're delighted to announce that B12d, or the B12 deficiency Support Group, is now registered as a charity in England and Wales.

Our certificate can be downloaded by clicking here (this is a low resolution copy - the original is a big big file!).

Being registered with the Charity Commission means a lot.  It means that

  • the Charity Commission has scrutinised what we do, carefully, to make sure that it is in the public benefit and does not support any one political party
  • the Charity Commission is scrutinising what we do with our resources (any donations and assets, from any source) and we have to send in annual reports
  • the Charity Commission checks each of our Trustees and Officers to ensure that we are fit and proper people to be Trustees and/or Officers
  • the Charity Commission keeps a watching brief on everything that we do, so make sure we don't stop working for the public good

It really is an endorsement of all of the hard work that has gone into building the group over the years, and we are very proud of it!

To contact Dr Chandy and the Support Group, please email notifications@b12d.net. Please note it may take 5-10 days to get a reply.

Julia found her eyesight going as her eyes refused to focus on the same things as each other. She's been for all sorts of tests and treatment, but now that she's on B12 replacement therapy she's starting to see an improvement.
Just the way it works for humans, oral B12 can make a world of a difference for your pet. My old cat Smudge chases the young cat again, climbs ladders (and climbs down herself), and is generally as fit as she was many years ago.

Janette first appeared in the BBC InsideOut documentary in October 2006. Since then the NHS has forced her doctor to withdraw B12 replacement therapy on a number of occasions, and she tells of her struggles with having B12 and then having it taken away.

This video is over 1 hour long and represents real political change - we are at last on our way.
Dr Chandy was nominated for the North East Local Heroes award. The interviewer was at first surprised - people don't get awards for doing what they are paid to do - but she persisted.
