These sessions make a huge difference to us as a family. SNAP is like a home from home.

We Need Your Support

Messy Play at a Stay and Play session

SNAP provides a lifeline to Essex families who have children with special needs and disabilities but is dependent upon donations for its continuing existence.

Your support will mean that we can continue to provide a range of activities and services which are so vital to so many families in the local community.

Throughout the year more than 500 children and young people regularly come to The SNAP Centre to take part in therapies, play sessions and clubs and over 600 parents and carers receive hands-on help at the centre.  In total over 1,800 families across Essex benefit from our information and advice services, delivered by our team of friendly staff and 100 dedicated volunteers.

This year we must raise in the region of £250,000 from donations and fundraising in order to cover our costs, but together we are confident that we can make this happen.
