Fledglings Family Services
22nd March 2016
Fledglings is a national charity that finds and sells products that improve the lives of children with additional needs, and their families.
We know that caring for a child with additional needs can be very challenging. We can help. The products we source and supply help make life a bit easier for a parent, and more fulfilling for their child.
We specialise in finding those unusual items, including many specially designed for disabled children with specific needs. Our products are simple solutions to complex problems, and if we don't stock a product ourselves, we can point you in the direction of someone who does.
As of 2016, Fledglings has been running for over 17 years . We have a database of over 25,000 parents, carers and organisations involved in the care of children with additional needs. Our customers range from the parent looking for a single item to assist with the every day living of their child, through to hospitals, schools and council departments. As well as sourcing and stocking items from suppliers and wholesalers we produce our own lines of bibs, neckerchiefs, aprons and vests, designed specifically with children with additional needs in mind.
To ensure that disabled children and those with additional needs are not hindered from achieving their potential through parental lack of knowledge of affordable products.
To ensure that parents of disabled children are empowered in their parenting role and relieved in their caring role through the provision of tried and tested products and services targeted to meet their specific needs. Through our e-News we are aiming to create a network of families caring for a disabled child who will share practical product information.
