The Pod creates a safe haven for Children, Young People and Adults, opportunities for fun, friendship and community involvement – a sense of belonging.
The charities success is largely due to our talented team of trained and experienced Youth Workers who inspire, guide and support the Children and Young People, encouraging them to try new things and take risks.
The team are also a source of advice and support for the whole family and other professionals.
When Children and Young People are taking part in Pod activities, families benefit from informal respite. Carers can meet other parents and carers who face similar challenges and have the opportunity to build a network of support and understanding that helps ease the difficulties they often face.
The children who take part in our activities and their parent carers are equally passionate about The Pod and the difference it makes to their lives. A parent posting on social media said “…my child’s life has changed massively since joining The Pod. They are able to give her and other children a safe place to make real friends, something that isn’t always so easy for children with additional needs.”
