About us

Established in 1902, we are a local independent charity providing activities and support for children and young people with additional support needs and their families.  You can read a bit more about our history here.

Enjoying the Woods

Pre-covid, each month we usually averaged around 400 visits from children and young people, around 250 visits from parents and carers and around 150 visits from volunteers.  Our groups are slowly resuming.

We have a fully accessible and specially designed play and activity centre, opened in 2005.  We completed this independently following a period of intensive fundraising and we remain hugely grateful to everyone who supported us.  This was a massive undertaking for a small organisation like us, and we are extremely proud of our purpose built premises.  Have a look at some pictures here.

All our activities are free.
