Aiming Higher supports families with disabled children in Blackpool and the Fylde coast with the centre based at church street Blackpool.
Our centre provides a range of facilities for families with disabled children, usually these would include soft play areas, ball pool and sensory room. However, at the moment we are unable to use these facilities.
The effects of COVID-19 on disabled children and their families is not to be underestimated and our family support service team are experiencing unprecedented demand for their services.
Our team can provide these services, however, in order to do so we need to refurbish and adapt our existing first floor space into suitable facilities.
We intend to relocate our existing office areas to the newly acquired space on our second floor.
Naturally there are significant costs involved in transforming the current office space into the relaxing and calming areas where we can address a families problems and work with them to find the solutions they need.
The COVID-19 situation has created a growth in demand for family support services and we need to provide the correct environments in which to help and assist these families.
If you are able to make a donation towards the refurbishment of our centre or if you’re a tradesman of craftsman that can help with the work required, then we’d be delighted to hear from you.
