Service description:
Sky Badger is a UK wide charity providing help through our online platforms and helpdesk 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

They do this by building bridges between disabled children and the charities and services available to help. They find everything from disabled sports clubs to sibling groups, to help at school to ‘make a wish’ charities, and tell families about them though their website, social media platforms, videos, information packs, and helpdesk.

Sky Badger help about 1,000 families every day and are completely free to use.

They support children and young people with all disabilities and special needs, from autism to eating disorders, to epilepsy. They support siblings, parents, grandparents, and friends. They support teachers, medical staff, and social care staff. Children do not have to “qualify” to get support. Sky Badger also runs a disability awareness programme for primary schools.
