Adult Children

Welcome to Skylarks

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 provide the environment for children with additional needs and their siblings to build lasting relationships, while also offering them the opportunity to grow and develop together through play, activities and therapies.

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 and support groups, or simply a listening ear over a hot drink.
