Who We Are:

Created over 30 years ago, the charity has its roots firmly based supporting families and children with additional needs. Today the centre is for all children, giving those without additional needs empathy and appreciation for others, regardless of differences. Here we value each child’s unique qualities. We provide care, support and facilities which enable all children to grow and learn together at our Childcare Setting, Holiday Playscheme & Play Sessions.

What We Do:

From 3 months to preschool, there is a place for everyone here and we can help those without transport to access our facilities on our own minibus. Early intervention is key to helping our children reach their full potential, the outstanding skills of our staff allow us to provide specialist support if and when required. We have established excellent working relationships with Physiotherapists, Speech & Language Therapists, Paediatricians and Health Visitors and Social Workers in Gloucestershire. Our help extends to the whole family around the child, through support groups and workshops. It is an informal meeting place for parents and professionals involved in the care of the children , from those at the beginning of a diagnosis to those who have diverse and complex conditions. Our world is changing for the better, we are breaking down barriers  for those with special needs, which is why our centre is for all children, learning and growing together.

Why We Need You:

Now we’re in 2023, the Centre is looking for sponsorship to keep our early years children and education, forest school, sensory room and family workshops afloat. We don’t receive any government funding over above nursery funding, so we rely entirely on grant aid, local sponsorship and personal contributions. We wouldn’t be able to continue serving our community and the children who need us most without your support.


A list of charities that we are partnered with are here for you to select. Some of the charities that we work with have fundraising targets and others are self-funded by yourself, each charity we work with will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.


You can book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person on any operational day. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-selected days that you are more than welcome to join.


OK you’re all set – This is now the time to start fundraising for your selected charity, we recommend to set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice. Please remember you are unable to use any money raised to pay for your skydive and if you have a target set by the charity you have to hit this 3 weeks before the date of your jump to ensure these funds are online for the charity to see!
