Kids

We support over 13,500 disabled children, young people and their families every year by delivering over 120 services throughout England.

KIDS is unique; there is no other organisation dedicated to providing such an extensive range of services to disabled children and young people, aged 0-25 years, irrespective of their impairment or condition.

Play Therapy Bedford

The key purpose is to provide therapeutic support for children and young people (3 +). Play and creative arts therapy can help children to gain a better understanding of their emotions and feelings. It can help work through traumatic events, divorce, bullying, anxiety to name a few. I have a toolkit I use including art, clay, sand, puppets and music. A minimum of 12 sessions are recommended, though this depends on the level of need. Group sessions are available too.

Sibs

Sibs exists to support people who grow up with or have grown up with a disabled brother or sister. It is the only UK charity representing the needs of over half a million young siblings and over one and a half million adult siblings.

Siblings have a lifelong need for information, they often experience social and emotional isolation, and have to cope with difficult situations. They also want to have positive relationships with their disabled brothers and sisters and to be able to choose the role they play in future care and support.

Visual Impairment Team

We work with people of all ages with a visual impairment whose sight cannot be corrected by glasses or medical treatment. The majority of our referrals come from local and national hospitals for registration purposes, but anyone can refer to us if they are experiencing difficulties with their vision.

After an assessment, we can offer a rehabilitation plan tailored to meet a person’s needs. This may include:

Instruction on how to complete daily living tasks such as cooking, making drinks, using the telephone, and writing
Mobility training to complete local routes independently
Appropriate specialist equipment
Sign posting to local and national VI services

We aim to provide specialist knowledge and support to ensure that people understand their eye condition, regain confidence and independence, and are aware of other services available to them.
