Empathy for special children is a registered charity, working across Shropshire to improve the lives and reduce social isolation of those growing up with a Hidden Disability.

Formed in 2010 by three like minded parents, who believed that their children deserved an equal opportunity at a fun and fulfilled childhood.

We are proud to still be user led and that core belief still underpins all we do.


Today we are a professional organisation and a short breaks provider.


With a team of dedicated volunteers overseeing 3 core projects and an amazing and committed team of staff delivering a variety of activities across the county every week.


Year on year, month on month we grow, we change, we adapt.


We do this to ensure those that need us can reach us and so we can continue to bring fun, friendship and laughter to special lives whilst reminding families that no family member living with a hidden disability need ever feel alone.
