Who we are - enriching lives
The Spring Centre provides help for children and young people (aged from 0-18yrs) with complex needs and often profound or multiple disabilities. We also support the parents, carers, brothers and sisters of the children that attend the Centre.
We provide practical help for each family and work with parents to ensure that they can access our services in a way that is appropriate for them. Each child has an individual care plan and our team of care staff have many years experience working with children and young people who have a wide range of special needs.
At the Centre, children and young people can participate in a range of activities that are designed to enhance and develop social groups and encourage the development of peer to peer relationships. In addition, many of the services we offer encourage the development of life skills and working towards independence. Parents can take part in services that are designed to enhance social networks, reduce isolation and manage the stress that can be associated with their family circumstances – we also provide practical help to parents, for example, by helping with Disability Living Allowance forms, giving advice as to where to find funding for specific equipment and providing statements of support. Siblings can participate in our services too – check out our services pages for more information.
