Aims and Objectives

To relieve the needs of children and young people with additional needs and disabilities and their parents, carers and siblings and to promote social inclusion by providing a support network & activities in a non-judgmental environment.

History and Background

We formed two years ago when a group of parent carers came together and realised that there was not enough out there for children with additional needs & disabilities to do & that many people with a disabled child struggle with social isolation

Activities and Projects

We provide sensory based activities, forest schools, science sessions and sensory activity packs as well as many other activities for children with SEND and their siblings. We also provide training courses for parents such as Makaton and First Aid and parent carer meet ups.
