What we do:

  • Our projects running from Craven Arms, Oswestry and Telford ; Fortnightly Family Friendship Groups - multi activity, family. Out and About - Holiday, Family. Unleashed - Holiday, Young People with difficulties. Social Sibs - Monthly, Siblings.
  • All activities are delivered in all 3 areas of the county. All are supported by our trained "Enable" leaders, who are always on hand to support interactions and provide a positive role model to all.
  • No child or Young Person needs a formal diagnosis of anything to attend Empathy and whilst we are most suited to those in mainstream or specialist ASD settings , anyone that feels their family may benefit from any session is welcome.
  • Whilst we are a registered charity, we remain user led. With our children/young people at the core of all we do. New families will be welcomed and supported at any session by a member of the local management team; who are all parents of special children.
  • We aim to ensure that every child has and equal opportunity at a fun and fulfilled childhood and at any session we guarantee you will find Fun, Friendship and Empathy. We look forward to meeting your special family.

Empathy for special children works across Shropshire and Telford, providing regular, supported social opportunities for those those growing up with Autism Spectrum Conditions / Additional needs and their families. Our year round programme of support provides not only opportunities for families to enjoy some fun, friendship and support together but also enables our young people with difficulties and neurotypical sibs to spread their wings and find support with their own dedicated sessions.
