Dear supporters and friends,

We would like to give you updates of what we have been doing with your financial support over the last 3 months, in helping children with special needs to learn and connect. 

Destiny Children and Family support project offer weekly tutoring and creative social activities to children with special needs, giving parents and carers 4 hours of respite services per week as a short break. However due to COVID-19 the project has been put on hold since it was about social activities we have put this project on hold until furner goverment guidlines. The project was running every Monday at Bromley URC, from 5-7pm and Wednesday’s at the Mounthfield Community Centre, Orpington from 5-7pm. These 4 hours of short break’s enable parents and carers to relax while their children are learning and doing creative activities to boost their social and life skills. 


Over the winter season until 20th March, children and young people have been engaged in arts, crafts and educational games, reading story books, maths and creative social activities where children and young people are supported to engage in learning and create useful small objects in arts,and use their imagination to be creative. In the group they are able to socialise and form friendships .

The children were receiving vital support to boost their learning and social skills through this project and this will assist them in experiencing a brighter future.  It is so wonderful to know that, some of the materials and support costs were been paid for from the contributions that you have all made to this project. Our work is only possible through the kind donations and support from our incredible donors like you.

As you all know, COVID-19 still arround and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our members, we have decided to put on hold all our sports activities including our special needs clubs and support our members remotely. As a charitable organisation, we will continue to support our members by sharing valuable SEN information and fitness exerice for well-being via our Destiny children and Family Support group on WhatsApp and Zoom video. We are aslo providing free donation via fareshare food distribution to our members once a week every by deliving free parcel food to their home as needed.

Looking ahead we will continue to support our member remotely via WhatsApp group , Zoom video for fitness exerice and telephone calls as well as providing free food distribution to our members as we can to support them during Covid-19.

We are hoping to restart the provision of our social activities , educational trips and outings at the end of the year 2020 but will depend on the Government guidlines on Covid-19 and on your valuable contributions, as the project is not yet fully funded. We do hope that you will continue to support us again.

This Project has been helping to solve these issues, and we hope to continue to support many children and young people as we can to access activities, and give a break to their carers.

Dear supporters and sponsors,

We would like to give you more updates of what we have been doing with your financial support Helping Children with Special Needs to learn and connect. 

Destiny Children and Family support project continue to offer weekly Tutoring and creative social activities to children with special needs, giving 4 hours of respite services per week as a short break to parents and carers of children with disabilities. The project is growing and continue to run every Wednesday at the Mounthfield Community Centre, Orpington and every Monday at Bromley URC from 5-7pm. These 4 hours of short break give opportunity to parents and carers to have a break from their caring duties to relax while their children are learning and doing creative social activities to boost their social and life skills. 

Many parents and carers of children with special needs such as Autism, ADHD and other learning disabilities are isolated with their children because of the lack of social engagement and affordable activities for their children. Children are more socially affected because of their complex communication needs, and the lack of accessible activities make them prone to loneliness and isolation. This Project has been helping to solve these issues and we hope to support many children and young people as we can to access activities and give a break to their carers.

Every Monday and Wednesday of each week, children aged 5-14 years get support in reading and writing as a form of tutoring, supporting them in their school homework, giving them opportunities to play together and engaging in creative social activities to boost their learning, communication and social skills which are useful in life.

Over the last 3 months, children and young people have been engaged in arts, crafts and educational games. In December 2018, children decorated beautiful handmade Christmas cards to their families, practising Christmas songs and enjoy using their imagination to create useful small material in arts and being part of the group where they socialise and learn together with their peers. See pictures and our latest news letter attached.

The children are receiving vital support to boost their learning and social skills through this project and this will give them the opportunity to have brighter futures. It is so wonderful to know that, this year, some of the materials and support costs are been paid from the contributions you made to this project through GlobalGiving supporting Children with Special Needs to Learn and Connect. Our work is only possible through the kind donations and support from our incredible donors like you.

We organised and went on an educational coach day trip to West Midlands Safari Park during the October half term holiday which was part funded by Daytrippers foundation. Children and families were fascinated by the range of exotic animals that they encountered along the way of the Safari drive, and enjoyed the informative talk by the ranger on board. Families were able to exchange ideas and tips, and comfort each other, while enjoying the outing trip together with their children, which in turn improve the quality of life, reduce stress. It was nice to see children and families spending good quality time together and have fun regardless of daily challenges. We ended the year 2018 by hosting our annual Christmas party for recipients of our project, for children and families to enjoy. The children sang christmas songs, were entertained by an entertainer and every child and young people received a present from Santa. All this could have not happened without your donations and thank you so much for giving a smile and a best summer holiday to many families

Looking ahead we will continue to run our weekly tutoring and creative social activities. We are hoping to provide more educational trips and outings this year but all depend on your valuable contribution as the project is not yet fully funded yet but we hope you will continue to support us again. Please remember to make your donation share the project page with your network by Click here to Support Children with Autism to Learn and Connect .

Your donations are the key in conducting such educational activities and offering support to our children and families.  We thank you from the bottom of our heart for your valuable donations which has enabled us to do so. Thank you to all our donors who have been supporting us for the last few years. Your donations have really enabled disadvantaged children and families to encourage social integration and reduce isolation and loneliness, bring families together, create stronger and friendlier communities and help children to develop in social skills to excel in their life. We look forward for your continued support and engagement with our project.
