Swings & Smiles provides a specialist service for children and young people with special needs and disabilities and their families to be happy, have fun and feel included.
By providing an accessible and safe place to play at our fully resourced centre in Thatcham, the opportunity for social inclusion for many children has been hugely increased with families often experiencing the joy of spending quality time together for the first time when accessing our services.
Swings & Smiles are there for the whole family and, alongside play, essential emotional and practical support for parents, carers and siblings is offered to help alleviate isolation and bring groups together. Our sibling support service delivers drop-in support and a 5 week programme runs across local schools.
Some families may find it difficult to access our centre, children who are very unwell or families who don't have access to transport may have previously missed out on time to have fun. Our outreach programme brings play out into the community and sensory sessions are also offered in conjunction with other organisations and services.
Swings & Smiles need your help to continue running these essential services, working with children and young people with special needs and disabilities. Demand for our services is growing and we want to continue to meet the needs of those that require our help and support.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
