In 2019, The National Garden Scheme will be supporting KIDS for the first time, donating £85,000 to develop the garden spaces at two of their Early Years care centres, KIDS Basingstoke nursery and Wylde Green Centre.
KIDS supports 15,000 disabled children, young people and their families every year by delivering over 120 services throughout England. KIDS has been transforming the lives of disabled children for nearly 50 years, being there from birth through to early adulthood. We improve their mental and physical health and well-being by creating opportunities to take part in positive play, learning, leisure, training and social activities and by making sure their family has the support they need.
KIDS Chief Executive, Caroline Stevens said: “The support from the National Garden Scheme will help make our gardens more inclusive for disabled children, helping them engage in nature and providing them with play and development opportunities, which they often miss out on. This will help us transform the space and have a real impact on the children’s health and wellbeing. We can’t thank you and your supporters enough”.
