The Foundation

In 2017, David Forbes-Nixon and the board of the DFN Charitable Foundation have set three audacious goals for the Foundation to achieve over the next 10 years:

1.  To fund research to find a cure for myeloma.

2.  To create an employability skills project ('DFN MoveForward') which will significantly improve the employment prospects of young people with special education needs.

3.  To create a world class special needs school at Undershaw/Stepping Stones.

Special Education

The DFN Charitable Foundation purchased Undershaw Hotel in Hindhead in September 2014, in order to create a world class special needs school. 
Undershaw is the former residence of the author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and once restored will provide a spacious, bright and positive environment for the students to continue onto the next stages of their education and development.
