What we do

Swings & Smiles is a place to play for children with special needs and their families. It offers a unique environment where the whole family feels supported and where they can spend quality time together. Our services include play sessions, sibling support and outreach.

Swings & Smiles provides activities for children and young people aged 0-19 years old with a wide range of disabilities and special needs to be able to enjoy playing together without the pressures often experienced in wider community settings. 

We support the whole family including parents, carers, the child with special needs, brothers, sisters and grandparents. Our support is hugely varied and depends on the needs of the family, we will tailor support to individual need. Swings & Smiles also welcomes adults with disabilities who may benefit from this type of environment and visits from community groups and respite providers.

We're open seven days a week and throughout term times and school holidays. 

Play sessions, youth club, out and about in the community, outreach in schools, groups or individual sessions.
