Weʼve raised £210 to fund family events for Special Friends, a wonderful support group for children with additional needs and their families in the Belper area.
- Belper, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 12th April 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The aim of Special Friends is to offer support through friendship and shared experiences to families of children with additional needs from the early stages of their journey, with the hope that they need never feel alone.
We are a small charity doing big things and need your help!
As the mum of two children with diverse and complex needs myself, I started the group in 2014 after unsuccessfully attempting to meet other special needs families in the area.
We now have over 50 families who are all part of the wonderful thriving community that is Special Friends!
As well as our monthly playgroup sessions, we also hold regular activities for our older children, support for siblings, parents and events for the whole family.
We have made a huge impact on so many lives already and are extremely proud of the wonderful, uplifting culture that we have created in a world that is often so full of tough challenges and heartache.

Penny is hosting a gorgeous coffee morning on Friday 31 March to help raise funds for our wonderful group. Thank you so much to Penny for organising this and all her guests for their generous donations, it means so much to so many local families, reducing social isolation and injecting some very much needed 'normality' into their otherwise complex lives. We really appreciate your support x
