Charity description

SCWAD is a support group in the Swindon area for parents and carers of disabled children who have rare chromosomal or metabolic disorders or who remain undiagnosed.

When your child is undiagnosed or has a rare disorder it can be very isolating. Living with a disabled child is hard but it is even more difficult when there is no one out there to support you because you don’t fit into any of the support groups available. 30-40% of disabilities are undiagnosed.

As well as supporting parents and carers with social evenings, our children meet in monthly activity sessions. Children like ours are often not fully accepted by their peer group at school and now they are able to meet new friends in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone is a bit different.

We also run day trips and short breaks when funding allows to give families a change from their daily routine.

Charity No: 1137165
