At Skylarks, their vision is a world where children with additional needs and disabilities can thrive. Skylarks provides a supportive and active community. They care for the whole family, providing opportunities to join in, develop and feel empowered. Skylarks want to remove the isolation that can be created for families and their children who have a disability or additional needs. Although based in Richmond upon Thames, they have an open door policy. Anyone, from anywhere, is welcome!
Skylarks provides a number of services and activities for children including but not limited to hydrotherapy, yoga, karate and drama, creative play, cooking, computer coding and support services such as counselling. In addition they support parents, carers and families through counselling, networking and a dedicated SEND advice service.
Last year Skylarks supported 500 unique children and that number is growing fast.
Aaron Guiver, Skylarks Managing Director: “We are delighted to be involved with the Empower London Foundation and the London Festival. This is a fantastic opportunity for a small charity like Skylarks to spread the word about the amazing work we do to support children with additional needs and disabilities in south London.”
