Registered Charity Number: 1151463
Sunshine Friends is a national registered charity based in Wales, with branches in Bristol and the West Midlands.
Our aim is to raise awareness and provide services for people with disabilities. We currently have several projects that we work with on a daily basis.
A social network with chat rooms, forum and lots of advice and inspirational storys for people with disabilities and for their parents or carers
Working Friends - a service that works with people of employment age who have disabilities, giving them the ability to have a digital and/or video CV made for them. It is a very sad fact that very few employers will even both to interview a prospective employee who has a disability. With the video CV our clients are able to show any employer just how good they are at their chosen career
Hyder Cymru - a peer-to-peer mentoring programme working with young people with learning disabilities who are approaching the end of their school life. For many this transistional period was stressful and difficult, for someone who has additional needs it can be an extremely distressing time. The charity employers young people between the ages of 18 and 23 who are all trained as specialist youth workers to help young people through this stage, listening to their problems, their hopes and dreams and then helping them make the first move into their chosen next step, be it further education, training or employment.
We are also in discussion with a large charity that provides help to the aged. Our research has shown that after people with learning disabilities reach the age of 65, there is no provisions available to them. We are currently looking of ways to work with the other charity to get that changed.
