    Story

    We are a parent run support group, we recognised there was a huge gap and lack of funding to provide families who have children with additional needs quality time together. To do activities where the whole family can access it together to create friendships and support circles in a environment where the families are not judged and stared at. Already we are seeing some lovely friendships develop in families and children by them attended our activities.

    We also have a closed Facebook support group, where parents can chat and ask for advice. There are currently over 500 parents in this group and it is very active. We also have a open Facebook information sharing page where we share our events, share local authority SEND information etc and a Twitter account that we use to connect with other organisations around Stockport.

    We currently run a twice weekly coffee drop in, monthly coffee evening, monthly minecraft club, weekly soft play session and regular activities during school holidays. These are all in local places, all closed to public and only open to families who have children with additional needs/disabilities.

    We rent a local young people's centre to run the drops ins, family activity sessions, coffee evenings, training for parents, clubs for children. We fund the centre through fundraising, we aim to make things as accessible for families to use as possible. To improve the facilities available, for example a sensory room, adapted changing room/toilet, computer room.

    The group is run solely by volunteer parents, who all have children with disabilities.
