SNAAP is unique: there are no other local organisations which provide the extensive range of services to children with every kind of disability, aged from 0-25 years, in partnership with parents. The focus of the services is upon all of the child’s needs including educational, social, developmental and emotional. We focus upon the whole family and not just on the child with disabilities.
The project was started in 2013 by a group of parents who wanted to make a difference and realised that they were not alone in feeling isolated and frustrated. With the help of Contact a Family, who carried out a consultation that highlighted a lack of support and information and also very little leisure opportunities for disabled children, SNAAP was born. Our Manager, Carrie Wood, is one of those founding members and helped make SNAAP the amazing charity that it is today.
As a needs-led organisation, we listen to our families and our services are developed to meet those needs.
At the heart of SNAAP lies our fundamental belief in informed parental choice, empowering parents to access the very best services and support to ensure that their children achieve their goals in life.
