Signpost Inclusion works creating activities and groups for children with special needs, including both physical and hidden disabilities. A large number of children we work with are on the autistic spectrum.

Signpost Inclusion has a family focus. We believe that to help children with additional needs and disabilities, the whole family has to be the focus. Research shows that families with children with additional needs and disabilities are far more likely to breakdown. We believe that supporting the whole family is the key to a better future, improving family dynamics and relationships. For this reason we have a section of activities we plan for families as a whole.

We are a small yet empowering organisation and all our staff are both understanding and patient with the needs of those we reach.

Through the year, Signpost Inclusion run Seasonal Activities for children with additional needs and their families, including Easter, Summer, Halloween & Christmas. We understand that school holidays are difficult, the summer holidays especially, which is why we run activities during the school holidays too.  We have Easter egg hunts, cake decorating, craft activities,  animation, pumpkin carving and even a Santa visit!We also run a family swim session once a month, where we exclusively hire our local pool. Our children look forward to these events and they always book up fast.

We always try to aim these at the whole family including siblings.

We have alot of help from funders and cannot exist without their ongoing support. This year we have applied for funding to support our larger running activities, meaning our smaller activities are as yet unfunded and coming out of our very limited funds due to being a non-profit community interest company.

We would like to emplore you to see how important our work is to the people we support and in turn support us in delivering this.

This crowd funding page is to raise money to help fund our family swim sessions for the year.

Many thanks.
