  1. We are a a registered charity based in Wakefield and our social mission is to ensure that all children and adults with disabilities have the opportunities to achieve their aspirations in life.
    In pursuit of our social mission, we have developed the following key aims:
    • Improving the lives of families with disabled children
    • Developing a 'count me in' society

    We do this by providing the following services:

    Family support
    Our family support services are for carers of children and adults with disabilities too. They include:
    • One-to-one support
    • Telephone and email support
    • Group meetings
    • Training on specific issues (e.g. stress management and knowing their rights)
    • Attendance at multi-agency meetings
    • Advocacy Services
    • Social events (including our Halloween and Christmas parties)
    • General advocacy

    Education
    • We provide educational programmes addressing disability, bullying and racism. Our hope is that if children, from a young age, know how to better treat those with disabilities or from different cultures, we will have a more accepting and inclusive society in the future.
