Who are we?

Springboard is a specialist centre that supports pre-school children

 with special needs and their families. Our motto is:

‘maximising ability, minimising disability’

What do we do?

  • We are a specialist pre-school (children aged 2-5) offering 1:1 or 1:2 adult to child ratio care and education for children with additional needs.
  • Staff are clinically trained to deal with any specialist medical needs our children might have.
  • We run a stay and play “Rabbits’ session for children (aged 2 and under), their carers and siblings.
  • We provide information, support and training to families and other pre-school settings either in our Chippenham centre or as part of an outreach program.
  • We are a ‘hub’ for external professionals e.g. speech and language, physiotherapy, community paediatrican etc. Children can be seen by these professionals at Springboard in an environment that they are familiar with reducing the need for lots of separate hospital and clinic visits.
  • We run a monthly group ‘Saturdads’ which aims to support and include dads, other male carers and siblings.
  • In the school holidays we run stay and play sessions for the whole family and independent holiday club sessions to provide parents with respite care or some much needed fun for the children in a safe learning environment.

How are we funded?

During this financial year 54% of our funding will come from the local authority.

The remaining 46% shortfall needs to be raised by us as a charity.

This year our fundraising target is a staggering £140,000.
