New Hope Worcestershire

Registered Charity Number: 1149659

We are a day respite centre for children aged 6-19 with disabilities. We were started by Jean Wilson 3 years ago, herself a mother of a disabled daughter, Emily. When Jean could not find suitable daytime respite for Emily she decided to start up her own project for parents like herself.

 The project opened in July 2010 supporting 3 families and now some 3 years later it supports 83 families, a huge growth in a short space of time. Proof that a new daytime respite service was truly needed in Worcestershire. It's the only project to open every school holiday and every Saturday throughout the year here in Worcestershire. Its also the only project to open from 9.30am/5pm during school holiday, this ensures parents and carers receive regular meaningful breaks from their caring responsibilities.

We support and enable the children whilst out and about to access leisure facilities in the community like their non-disabled peers would. Examples of activities include: grass-boarding, cinema, bowling, horse-riding, outdoor adventure centre and Snowdome.

We also like to host family fun days for the families to enable them to socialise in a safe, friendly environment. Due to the nature of the children's disabilities, the families often struggle to socialise as the children are unable to cope with large crowds, etc. Being a parent/carer of a child with a disability can be very socially isolating, our family fun days and other parent get togethers work towards easing this as friendships have been formed at these gatherings, and hopefully will continue to do so in the future.
