Charity information

Hop Skip & Jump South West

Hop Skip & Jump South West is a registered charity (number 1081811) providing support for families that have children with any type of special need aged from birth onwards. We rely on charitable donations to raise the £200,000 needed each year to keep our play centre running.

The charity was established in February 2003 to provide a unique combination of specialist support, respite, supervised play and day care for children and young people with any special need. The centre also provides families and carers with various other services.

Hop Skip & Jump is located in Kingswood, Bristol. The centre is unique in the region and is predominantly visited by families and groups from Bath & North East Somerset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire. The centre also receives visits from people living much further afield including areas such as Devon and Cornwall.

Aiming to improve the quality of life for children with disabilities, the charity helps individuals by building their confidence, social skills and self esteem through freedom of adventure, play, open spaces, fun and laughter. Hundreds of children benefit from the services offered with over 15,000 visits per year.
