Help us change lives

Every child should have an equal opportunity to play, learn, grow and thrive. Your support can help make that a reality.

Early years vision

We believe it’s vital that babies and young children with SEND have access to quality early years support.

A world where all kinds of kids have all kinds of opportunities

Childhood should be a joyful time. But some children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities are defined by what they cannot do. That’s wrong.

Every child should have an equal opportunity to play, learn, grow and thrive.

We create life-changing opportunities by providing a wide range of support. Together, we’ll empower disabled children to stand up for their rights.

Do something amazing!

Take on a challenge for Kids and help create a world where all kinds of children and young people have all kinds of opportunities.

Run a half marathon or a marathon, skydive, get muddy, bike ride, or take on a sponsored walk.
