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 information and support for their families and carers, all under one roof, at the same time.
