Our Vision


We have been working in Stoke on Trent for over 3 years and have a huge programme of activities that take place all around the city in Leisure centres and other venues.   All our activities are held in weekends after school and school holidays when we also run day trips. All children aged 0-19  with a disability living in Stoke can take part in these activities.  We run sessions covering dance music sport cooking arts and crafts. We help disabled children to make friends and have fun. Our  volunteers help us make sure children have a great time and can make friends with others.
