Cash for Kids Grant Will Make a Difference

Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is delighted to have received a grant of £2,135 from Wave 105 Cash for Kids for its children’s service - Coping with CHAOS.

The grant will help fund play sessions for children with disabilities and their siblings during the school holidays. Activities will include trips to the cinema, sessions with Crazy Creatures, going swimming and trampolining, and much more.
The sessions provide lots of opportunities for social interaction, and play is a great way for children and young people to explore the world around them. It allows them to learn and develop in a safe environment with trained staff.

A parent, whose child attends the charity’s play sessions, said: “I can't quite express how important these sessions are. The kids are well supported to be safe, enjoy themselves, try new things and build relationships. Us parents can relax and have a chat to others - who understand where we are coming from. A memory I will never forget is during a swimming session. I saw my son come down the water slide for the first time ever... he was so proud of himself! Thank you so much Cash for Kids we really appreciate your help.”

Tessa Masterman, manager at Coping with CHAOS, said:
“All children need to socialise and play with others, but children with disabilities need to be able to do this within an environment of acceptance and tolerance. We provide a safe and non-judgemental atmosphere for our children and parents to attend and are very grateful to Cash for Kids for enabling us to provide more sessions of ‘fun’ with our families.”
