Contact a Family

>>>Contact a Family

Lewisham Contact a Family is a local charity providing support to over 400 families with disabled children living in the borough.

The William Wates Memorial Trust funded two outdoor activity day courses for children with disabilities aged 5-19.

These events provided access to an activity that many families with disabled children would not otherwise participate in due to accessibility issues, financial constraints due to the cost of being a carer and a lack of confidence about the reaction of other people.

The days also encourage the children to access a wide variety of sports activities in the future.
