Listening, supporting and empowering disabled children and their families.
Who we are.....
Includes Us 2 is a local parent-driven charity providing Information and Support to disabled children, young people and their families in the areas of Ashford, Shepway and Dover.
Includes Us 2 is led by a Board of Trustees, the majority of whom are themselves parents of disabled children. This means we are able to ensure that our mission and values reflect the needs of disabled children and their families living in our area.
What we do......
Family Support Service providing practical support on issues affecting families who have a child with a disability or SEN.
Parent & Carer Support Groups facilitating peer support via informal coffee groups
Information about training opportunities and services provided by our partner organisations.
Subsidised family focused events for disabled children, young people and their families up to the age of 18 years, such as:
• Day trips to local attractions
• Exclusive access to soft play venues
• Exclusive, autism friendly cinema screenings
• Family fun days
What our members say about us….
“my son has autism. We love the autism friendly cinema days as he is allowed to just be himself and feel like everyone else. The family days out also makes it affordable too”
“Without the Includes Us 2 groups we wouldn't have received the vital information from workshops they hold and we wouldn't be able to meet families in the same situations as ourselves.”
“My Granddaughter wouldn't go out if there were no Includes Us 2 events. She has a brilliant time and is always so excited for them.”
“We love the support care and activities run by includesus2 -being a deaf mum with asd child means they take this into account and support where I need it .”
