Friends and Families of Special Children

Friends and Families of Special Children is a Plymouth based charity covering the city of Plymouth and the surrounding area.  We support families who have children that experience all forms of disabilities, additional needs and difficulties. 

Our services give families opportunities to network and create bespoke training and educational environments. We offer individual family support and give advice on relevant issues.

We run social and leisure events allowing, ”time-out to have fun” away from the stresses and punishing regime of caring. This allows a vital ‘recharge of batteries’, relieving isolation and time for young carers to have fun. Integrated activities enable children with disabilities opportunities to experience a huge diversity of sports, arts, crafts and music not elsewhere available to them or their families.

Devon County Council uses an SEND flag to list services which define themselves as suitable for children and young people with SEND. These are part of Devon's SEND Local Offer. We recommend that you contact the service provider to make sure the service is suitable for your child or young person.
