SNAP’s vision

Is to provide a safe environment offering a wide range of support and specialist services with the aim to increase resilience and empowerment within our families. SNAP’s ethos is about strengthening all members of the family.

“When parents first come to The SNAP Centre they often feel isolated and don’t know where to turn, but with SNAP’s support they grow in strength and knowledge and become better equipped to give the best possible help to their children,” says Karen Boath, SNAP CEO.

At The SNAP Centre

At SNAP there is so much to help a parent/carer of a child with additional needs. Our centre offers wonderful specialist resources for parents and children and an activity programme for children of all ages from 0-25 and their siblings.


With help SNAP can continue to support Essex families who have any special need or disability, as it has been doing for the last 28 years. We are currently supporting more than 3,200 families across Essex.
