hartlepool special needs support group Award Icon Runner Up


Hartlepool Special Needs Support Group. We have been running for 30 years with us acquiring our own premises in 1999. We support families with children and young adults who have various profound physical or learning disabilities with varying complex needs including life limiting conditions and to support their families-carers.

The services we provide are focused on supporting our beneficiaries to help them reach their full potential by increasing their opportunities and life prospects, therefore improving their chances in life.

Social and recreational opportunities on offer:-

  • Support and information sessions for parent carers.
  • Parent-carer baby-toddler and sign and sing sessions
  • Childrens fun, youth, drama and friends fun clubs
  • Summer Scheme, Trips, Short Holidays,
  • Core Fundraising Group – Activities


Most of our toys have been well used and also have bits missing or are damaged and now need replacing. We would therefore like to request that Hartlepool Special Needs Group be put forward for a donation for some games, example the children’s fun club have particularly asked for a rainbow chute parachute and bean bag target from rompa. Any other games would need to be appropriate to meet individual needs, easily understood, sturdy, including developing skills.

This help will enable us to continue to offer our services to our children and young adults and their families. Our children and young adults always look forward to attending activates and clubs. This would help the group to continue in giving high quality activities in the future.
