Parents & Carers
Fledglings is a national charity that provides practical advice and support about living with children with additional needs, and accurately signposts people to other organisations to get the other advice they need.
Fledglings finds and sells products that improve the lives of children with additional needs and their families and provides advice and support around these products.
We want a society where children with additional needs and their families and carers have access to the products, equipment and support they need to allow them to achieve their potential, maximise their achievements and improve their quality of life.
“Since discovering Fledglings I am reassured to have them in my care team for my daughter. Always helpful, knowledgeable and really understand special world. Worth browsing their website shop too to spark ideas for helping to make our children feel a sense of achievement, live to their full potential and take some of the pressure of us parent carers.” - Parent
