Incredible Kids is an inclusive Play & Support Network based in Bristol. We run weekly sessions for children and young people with additional needs aged 0-25, alongside their siblings, parents and/or carers.
We help children with a disability and their families to make friends, have fun and become more resilient. Our sessions include trained play workers who help children engage in meaningful play through art, drama, sport, animal education, circus skills, messy play, music therapy and much more. We have more than 40 volunteers who between them contribute at least 255 volunteer hours per week. Each year the charity welcomes 6,000 visitors in total.
Families with children who have additional needs often feel isolated, which inevitably leads to further challenges. Incredible Kids exists to give them hope by helping the children to have fun, and parents to make friends.
Our focus is the child, but our vision is for the family. When a child has additional needs the whole family is under pressure. So by helping these children to have fun and parents to find a listening ear, we can make a real difference to the outcomes for all.
Each and every person involved with Incredible Kids cares about helping families who experience the challenges that come with having a child or young person with a disability. As a Christian charity set up by families with lived experience of the challenges, we know what works and what helps strengthen family units by showing love to those who visit us.
