Kids is a leading charity for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. They create life-changing opportunities by providing a wide range of support.
Every child should have an equal opportunity to play, learn, grow and thrive. Kids’ reach is quickly expanding and they aim to support at least 120,000 disabled young people and their families, every year, by 2027.
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 support from the RNRMC they provide bespoke services to meet the needs of families.
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 wellbeing, 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.
