Little Miracles

Little Miracles Charity provides support for families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life limiting conditions.

Project overview 

The Together Fund project was aimed at providing a range of sport and physical activities for families to participate in. Through these activities Little Miracles Charity hoped to  

  • encourage their families and young people to be more active 
  • introduce them to a range of activities they may not have tried before 
  • encourage families to be more active together 


Organisation impact 

When asked about the organisation impact of the project Little Miracles said: 

Running this project has been a benefit to our charity as well as the families involved. It has raised our profile in the community allowing us to reach more families who need our support. We have also made good contacts with local groups and organisations, such as the local leisure centres which will allow us to run more sports sessions in the future. 

The interest from the families has also shown us how much need there is for these types of activities as many of our young people are excluded from a lot of the sports activities and groups because of their disabilities. Being able to put on these sessions has given them the opportunity to try things they may not have otherwise been able to.

The charity say they have learnt that there is a real need for these types of activities amongst families they support. Activities such as archery and roller skating sessions both went very well. 

Moving forward  

Little Miracles are now looking at working with the local leisure centres and their coaches to provide more courses (rather than just one-off sessions) for families and young people, so they can build on the skills they have learned. They are also hoping to arrange sessions for any of the families that currently home school.
