Kith & Kids

Kith & Kids is a London-based, user-led charity working with families who have children with autism or learning disabilities: many of whom have multiple disabilities.
Mainly Kith & Kids provides training and social development projects and activities for children and adults who have disabilities, but we also provide support and information to their parents and siblings.
We have a strong self-help ethos which means that families using our services put something back into the organisation.
