Service description:
Special Kids in the UK is a charity for families who have a child of any age with special needs.

Families who have children and young people with special needs often deal with similar challenges. They may have concerns about education, services, therapies, respite and other issues directly related to their child. Special Kids in the UK aim is to bring families together for friendship, to share information and to support one another.

The charity was created by parents who have children with special needs and appreciate how important this type of contact and information is. They hope that Special Kids in the UK will help other families who have children with any kind of special need, to realise that they are not alone.

Their special needs support forum is open to all members, extended family members, friends, and also professionals working with children who have special needs.

Charity members are able to access member benefits (for example, discounted trips and entry to attractions around the country when attending their family days). Charity members are also able to vote on some charity decisions and help with decisions on how charity funds are used to benefit the members. There is also a private section of the support forum where charity members can make contact with each other and access all member benefits.
