About this cause
We are a local charity in Hextable and we help disabled children and families. We currently help more than 450 families in Kent. Children we care for are aged 4-19, and can have; multiple learning difficulties, complex health needs, or a physical/sensory impairment. We help the local community, providing key services including; short breaks, family advice, and Dragon’s Retreat - a six-bed respite unit.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our service allows children from the local community to come together, socialise, learn new skills, make new friends and have fun. A parent said: “It really has been a lifeline for us as I am not lucky enough to have much other support. The whole team are fantastic with Scarlet and her needs, and she really thrives on the friendly and fun environment.”
