ABOUT US

Empathy for special children is a registered charity, working across Shropshire to improve the lives and reduce the 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 filled 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 trained and dedicated staff, running four core projects in three corners of the county.

 

An Empathy sessions runs somewhere in Shropshire every week, of every year and no family member living with a hidden disability need ever feel alone again.
