  • Need

    Need

    Trying to integrate children with complex needs and able bodied children to interact. Also for families to meet other families in their same situation as some families with complex needs children feel isolated or spend most of their life in hospital or live in hospital surroundings. It’s lovely to see them all get together.

    Solution

    It helps the able bodied children to see how the complex need children comunicate and also interact. As the parents can meet new parents and exchange advice. Meet new friends help no being isolated and also make special memories
