Kith & Kids provides activities, opportunities, information and support for people with a learning disability or autism, their parents and siblings.
We help the whole family to overcome social isolation and live more fulfilled lives.
Founded in 1969 by just two sets of parents, we have grown and adapted over the years to the changing needs of families whilst maintaining the quality of our services.
Throughout the year we provide a variety of volunteer-supported activities, offering opportunities to learn new skills, make friends, go out and have fun.
The person with a disability being the focus of our activities, we design individual needs-based projects and services that provide him or her with much-needed social interaction and a sense of “normal” life that most of us take for granted.
These include Social Development Projects in the main school holidays, Weekend Clubs, a Summer Camp, an Employment and Life Skills Project for young adults and Friendship Outings.
We offer a Family Support Service helping parents and siblings by introducing them to other parents and siblings as well as providing individual support. Our Outreach Service provides information, support and training to families, carers and organisations throughout the UK.
Kith & Kids also offers quality training to hundreds of volunteers throughout the year who support our projects and provide a vital link between our participants and the wider community.
