I thought it would be great to list all the organisations and charities that I feel have a useful place in society. Either we use them regularly, have been supported by them or I just think they are unique and potentially fab at helping families with a disabled child.
What a fabulous charity. They support thousands of children and families annually to live as happy and content life as possible. Please have a look at their website, their staff and ethos is just fantastic. http://www.happydayscharity.org
A fairly new but fantastically well run organisation that provides a database of all activities, party organisers and summer camp ideas for children. You simply put in a few key words and then receive lots of potential activities or teams for your child to join. Booking is easy and all done through the Kidz Central website. What I particularly love is the amount of clubs and activities they have specifically for disabled children. http://www.kidzcentral.co.uk
My secret favourite place in the whole world. What can I say? Jubilee House is Jude’s haven, his calm place and somewhere he can go and be himself without judgement. http://www.jubileehouse.com
It’s only because of this charity that we managed to get Jude any one to one Support Worker hours, or provide him access to Jubilee House. I have made a fabulous contact at Kids and feel indebted to her and her patience following her “idiot guide” explanation of how I could go about getting Jude some of the things he needs. She really was patient with me and my lack of understanding! http://www.kids.org.uk/hub
