Twinkle House – Making a difference to the lives of  Children and Young People with Disabilities and Additional Needs through their Charity work


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 and Additional Needs living in West Lancashire and neighbouring areas.  

We provide practical and emotional support to children aged 0-19 to help 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.

Our children’s 1:1 sessions are supported by our qualified Integrated Practitioner (In Social Work and Learning Disability Nursing) who is funded by The Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund. 

In order to continue providing our free services to children with Disabilities and their carers we need to raise around £50,000 each year to pay the running costs of the Charity, we raise some of these costs through hiring out rooms howver, it is not enough and we need your help. Please help us continue our support by making a donation to the Charity through our Donate Page on this website, or through or use this link to Local to create your fundraising page
