Special Spirits, based in Manchester, provides a wide range of programmes and activities for children with special needs and their families. We run over 18 services every week for 45+ children with a wide range of disabilities and for all their families too. A child with special needs comes with many challenges and we make sure nobody is left to manage these challenges on their own.
Our programmes include after school clubs, Sunday trips, Sleep away Camps, Day camps, Shabbatons, Birthday parties, Bar/Bas mitzvah celebrations, family events, family support and lots more.
The children build friendships with each other and are supported by their 1:1 keyworkers who help them achieve what they otherwise could never do. Over 80 volunteers give their time each week, bringing smiles to these special children.
Our services are crucial and depended on by the families. They are not a luxury for the parents and siblings who crave to lead a life like everyone else. We help ease the difficulties of caring for these special children.
