Skylarks has taken the hard decision to suspend all face to face services. We are currently working to bring additional services to our families at this difficult time. For further information click here.
HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE TO THRIVE!
Skylarks is a charity that provides activities and therapies for children with disabilities and additional needs, while supporting everyone whose lives they touch.
Skylarks is an independent Richmond upon Thames-based charity that provides activities and therapies for children with disabilities and additional needs. We also support and provide therapies, courses and information for their whole families.
You do not need a diagnosis or referral to join us and, whilst we are based in Richmond upon Thames, there are no geographical limitations for our members. Anyone from anywhere is welcome!
We offer opportunities for the children and their siblings to play, develop and access therapies and activities. We provide the environment for children to build lasting relationships with their siblings, while also offering them the opportunity to grow and develop through fun activities.
We provide information and support for families and carers, all under one roof and at the same time. We offer a range of workshops, therapies, support groups, or even a listening ear over a hot drink.
