What we do

what we offerKith & Kids’ aim is to empower families who have a son or daughter with a learning disability or autism (many also have a physical or sensory disability) to overcome their social exclusion. Founded over 40 years ago by just two sets of parents, we have grown and adapted over the years to the changing needs of families whilst maintaining the quality of our services. Commended for our pioneering spirit and innovative approach we have also been awarded the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award for voluntary service for groups in the community.

Throughout the year we provide a variety of volunteer-supported projects and services, offering opportunities to learn new skills, make friends, go out and have fun. The person with a disability being the focus of our activities, we design individual needs based projects and services that provide him or her with much needed social interaction and a sense of “normal” life that most of us take for granted.

We offer a Family Support Service helping parents and siblings by introducing them to other parents and siblings as well as providing individual support. Our Outreach Service provides information, support and training to families, carers and organisations throughout the UK.

Kith & Kids also offers quality training to hundreds of volunteers throughout the year who support our projects and provide a vital link between our participants and the wider community.
