is that disabled children have choices and the right to a fulfilling life.
We are honoured to have a distinguished patron, Steve Backley OBE, who brings his warmth, compassion and considerable influence to promote the work we do with disabled children in Bexley. Steve is not only an Olympic champion and former world record holder for javelin throwing, he is a great motivator and believes in enabling every individual to be the best they can possibly be.
SNAP aims to ensure that disabled children, young people and their families have plenty of opportunities to be out and about in their local community, playing, socialising, being with friends, being included in everyday life and supported when needed.
We encourage children and young people to choose the activities they enjoy and support them to take part in them! We support the family around the child by making sure they have access to the latest information and advice as well as events where they can meet friends to relax, support each other, discuss difficult issues, or just laugh about life’s ups and downs!
We strongly believe in supporting disabled children at the earliest opportunity; our Little Stars project is for very disabled children with physical developmental delay that have not yet started school and our Sensory stars project is for disabled children who could benefit from a sensory session with specialist equipment and fun activities.
Our programme of leisure activities ensures that there is somewhere for disabled children to have fun and develop their social skills away from the care of their families – offering a valuable short break to parents and carers.
We aim to offer something for everyone at SNAP - if you have an idea or wish for yourself or your child, please let us know – we will try to make it happen!
