Action For Kids is a charity that is dedicated to helping transform the lives of children and young people with physical and learning disabilities across the country by removing barriers to independence.
Action For Kids’ aim is to help young people with physical and learning disabilities find greater levels of independence and opportunity through the provision of appropriate aid and support. The charity has a programme of services, called “Towards Independence”, which includes:
- Mobility Equipment Provision & Maintenance Services – to help provide greater independent movement. In 2010-2011, 63 children and young people aged 2 – 26 benefited from the provision or maintenance of mobility equipment.
- Work Related Learning Services – to help provide independence and employment training. In 2010-2011 our service provision benefitted 643 young people from schools, colleges, social services, careers services and other agencies.
- Helpline & Family Support Services – to help provide information and support. Over 10,000 phone calls were made and received from parents and carers, occupational therapists and other professionals seeking advice and support over the last year.
- Accredited Independent Living Skills – practical training courses, with modules accredited by the Open College Network, which helps disabled young people to acquire life skills and take the first steps towards living and working independently.
