KIDS provides a wide range of support services to disabled children, young people and their families across England, supporting over 13,500 families each year. They work with children with any disability from birth to 25 years of age, offering support to the whole family with the aim of giving disabled children a brighter future.
KIDS make a very real difference to the lives of families with a disabled child through high quality, practical and tailored services delivered by dedicated professional staff.
Since 1990 KIDS has been helping to support serving and ex serving RN/RM Families to steer their way through the legislation and provide flexible, responsive services to meet their needs in Hampshire. With the support of the RNRMC they provide bespoke services to response to families needs.
Since 2000 KIDS has been working to enhance the lives of young carers aged 7-19 years. The program gives young carers a break from demanding and stressful responsibilities at home and provides a safe, nurturing environment where children and young people can develop their full potential. By providing face-to-face support groups and in-school intervention, KIDS helps hundreds of young carers to improve their well-being, develop coping strategies, build friendships and peer-support networks, and increase their current and future prospects.
KIDS delivers a weekly Staying Positive group in Gosport and Havant. Aimed at addressing the gap in mental health outcomes for young disabled people aged 14-25 years, to build their confidence and engagement with their community, the group continues to follow the NHS’ Five Steps to Wellbeing model: Connect; Be Active; Keep Learning; Give to Others; Be Mindful.
