We Are Beams

Disabled Children's Charity in Kent

Will you help to transform the lives of disabled children and young people?


“Beams have been vital for our family. We utilise many of the services. Help with school issues and EHCPs, Annual Reviews, support groups, play schemes for some holiday respite, family trips, family advice, many, many things! Our boys wouldn’t be in the position they are without Beams”

Every year we need to raise £2 million in order to continue our care services to the most vulnerable in society. We currently support 450 disabled children and their families and rely heavily on the local community and businesses for donations.

A regular donation of just £5 would make a big difference to our charity and the disabled children we support.

Please donate today. Anything you can give can make a real difference.

Strengthening Our Community

Our Family Advice Service are changing the lives of disabled children and their families. We know with the right support and guidance, children whatever their disability will thrive to lead a brighter future.

Sadly, many families feel isolated and overwhelmed with nowhere to turn to. Some will even struggle to access the right education for their child and live in constant financial worry. A donation of £10 will provide the initial phone call with a Family Advisor.

We give families the right advice to make the best choices for their child, providing information and advice on financial matters, education, health and emotional support. We offer support groups, 1 to 1 advice clinics, parent workshops and courses as well as a telephone helpline.

Ruby’s Story

“Ruby loves to play with others, particularly in the soft playroom where she can bury herself in the ball pit and enjoys the sensory therapies in the cabin in the garden.”

When Ruby was 4 years old, her family came to We Are Beams. For the last 10 years, Ruby has enjoyed breaks at our Dragon’s Retreat Respite Overnight care. Our centre is completely accessible, staffed by professionals and most importantly – is fun!
