South Wales Freemasons and the Sparkle team
Thanks to a £60,000 grant from South Wales Freemasons to Sparkle, children with disabilities or developmental difficulties in the Caerphilly area will be able to access specialist play clubs.
Bringing up a family is difficult enough, especially in the current climate. But some children with complex disabilities or developmental difficulties can have profound needs and often need extra support – as do their families.
The Sparkle charity fully supports children and their families enabling them to participate in valued childhood experiences, with access to the same range of opportunities, life experiences, activities and community services as any other child and their family.
This grant through the Masonic Charitable Foundation will allow children between five and eleven with disabilities or developmental difficulties to access specialist play clubs here, twice a week, led by trained supervisors. They’ll support children with a range of diagnoses, including autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, Down syndrome and various other genetic conditions.
