Registered Charity No: 278336 (England & Wales).
Since 1982 TVAP has made a difference in the lives of children and adults with special needs and their carers, parents and siblings by providing crucial respite days, support, advice, opportunities and a parent network – all in a safe, caring and stimulating 2.5 acre specially adapted site. It is unique, and offers an exceptional range of adventurous, theraputic and educational play, catering for children and adults with mild to profound disabilities. If you have a physical disability the difficulties and barriers to play are obvious, but, if you have a learning disability or autism, it can be hard to relate to other people and join their games. Weekly, SEN schools, nurseries, care homes and home schoolers visit to underpin their learning programmes. Before the pandemic we supported individuals and families over 30,000 times annually, with people traveling to us from over different 30 counties.
Our help does not stop when they stop being a child. From babies to adults, we help and support the person with special needs and their parents siblings and carers throughout their lifelong journey. With annual costs approaching £350,000 a year, as little as 5% of these are met by local authority grants, and public support plays a crucial part in maintaining a service which is a lifeline for so many people with a disability.
What difference a gift in a will can make? Your gift can safeguard TVAP and enable us to be there for families and their loved ones throughout their lives.
