For many of us, Christmas is the most special time of year – a magical period of celebration filled with presents, food and happy times shared with loved ones. Unfortunately for families with disabled children, this often isn’t the case. Families with disabled children in the UK are three times more likely to be living in poverty, with many needing to take out loans just to pay for food and heating over this period.
With your support, KIDS can make a difference to the lives of disabled children, young people and their families – not just at Christmas, but throughout the entire year. Our programmes allow children to take part in positive play, leisure, learning, employment training and social activities, whilst offering vital advice, support and respite services to their families. In our 43 year history we have never turned a child away, no matter how complex their impairment, and we have no intention of stopping until every disabled child in the country is fully included in, and supported by, their community.
Thank you for your support.
