Supported Sessions for Children & Young People with Disabilities and Additional Needs
Twinkle House Provides a FREE sensory-based personalised support service for children and young people 0-19 with Disabilities or Additional Needs living in North West England.
Our support to children aims to increase their resilience and ability to cope with minor difficulties before they worsen, we also provide emotional support, information and advice to their carers. We aim to empower families to bring about positive change in their lives thus improving their mental health and well-being.
