Kids in Action is a charity for special needs children with a strong focus on positively transforming young people’s lives.
Since 1996, we have provided opportunities and support to children, young people and young adults with disabilities and special needs in the UK.
From our centre in Dunstable we run a variety of clubs, as well as daily, weekly and school holiday activities.
From social and sporting events, to holidays and day trips, we are always coming up with new ideas and activities to change and enrich young people’s lives.
We have plans to expand further in the future too, by opening three more centres throughout the UK!
It may come as a surprise that up to 18% of the population in the UK has a disability, with 2% of the population born with a learning disability.
We are confident that our hard work is helping such young people with disabilities and special needs to achieve their aspirations and goals, reach their full potential and earn respect for their achievements.
In 2006 we bought our first caravan to provide great family holidays to our members, due to the success of this first one we have since purchased 2 more giving us a total of 3 and we are still looking to add to this which will mean more holidays, to date our families have enjoyed over 300.
Meet Bradley, Kids in Action's Face of 2017, he joined us in January 2015 and thoroughly enjoys spending time at our clubs.
He has suffered from several illnesses in his short life and despite these setbacks he bounces back and always has a smile
on his face.
Bradley has made a huge impact throughout the charity, if you are feeling down and need a tonic spend 10 minutes in this young man’s company and he will brighten your day.
