Special Stars Foundation are a registered charity providing inclusive events around  Hull and East Yorkshire for disabled children.

Registered charity number: 1156237

Raising a child or children with disabilities can be incredibly challenging - our families face social exclusion for many reasons - their child may look or act differently or have challenging behaviour for example.

We run fortnightly sensory play sessions (called 'Sunday Club'), regular theatre and farm trips, exclusive cinema screen hire, excluisve soft play centre hire, seasonal parties and discos, football fun sessions, bowling trips and lots more!

Its events like ours that can help a family with a disabled child get out of the house and meet people who are struggling just like they are in so many areas of life. Families have told us how much confidence they have gained in trying new things with their children because of the positivity and encouragement from Special Stars Foundation.

As part of our group, our families feel empowered. We support each other, give each other the strength to continue to fight to do 'normal' things as a family.

Special Stars Foundation recognises how difficult it can be for siblings too and positively welcome siblings of all ages to come to our events. We try to make sure there is 'something for everybody' at our sessions and each child/young person is just as important as the next.

We continually fundraise throughout the year to subsidize all of our events, making them affordable to our families......this in itself is a HUGE task - literally every penny counts!

We are running the Hull 10k on 8th June 2014 as a group to raise money for Special Stars Foundation - all runners are either parents of disabled children, friends or supporters
