Beams is a local charity that supports disabled children, young people and their families.
The disabled children and young people who access our services will typically have one or more learning difficulty, complex health needs, physical or sensory impairment, challenging behaviour, Autism or severe ADHD.
Our services are divided up into 4 key areas. These are:
This service is to ensure parents and carers receive the right information to help them make the best choices for their disabled child.
Our Short breaks service offers a range of leisure activities for disabled children and young people up to the age of 25 years.
A short break unit providing overnight care as a short break for children and young people up to the age of 19 years.
Beams have launched an appeal to fund a new garden at our respite unit, Dragon’s Retreat.
Our current garden is in desperate need of repair, the wheelchair swing has broken and parts of the garden are out of action.
