Challenge

There are 286,000 children aged 0-17 years with special needs in the UK. However, they are under-represented and still face disadvantages within the education system. Children with a learning disability may take longer to learn and need support in developing new skills, understanding information, and interacting with others. Furthermore, the families of children with special needs can feel isolated and stressed without short break, due to the lack of affordable activities for their children.

Solution

This project aims to prevent social isolation, vulnerability and support learning. With the right support, children with learning disabilities can lead fulfilling lives in the way they choose. This project will provide weekly tutoring sessions to children , creative social activities and opportunities for their families, such as family day outings and educational trips during school holidays. This will help children reach their education goals, increase self-esteem, develop social relationships.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help the children to succeed in school and will assist their families to have a short break as respite, so the children will grow up to be healthier and will have a better level of education. This will give them more employment prospects as adults in the future. This project will have an ongoing effect through the generations. These children will be literate, integrate socially, be able to support themselves independently, get a job and have a better life as they became adults.
