Families United Network (FUN) a Bedfordshire based charity that supports children with disabilities.
Families United Network (FUN for short) is passionate about supporting families living with disabilities. We provide Holiday Clubs, Activities and Trips and Community outreach projects for children and young people. We provide information and practical and emotional support for families and carers. We work hard to do as much as we can for the funding we receive.Why the community needs us
We make a massive contribution to our community in a number of ways. We support some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people in our society. We encourage volunteering among supporters of all ages, we provide information to help people achieve change, we provide disability awareness training for companies and public agencies. We believe in FUN but we are also serious about making a difference and transforming lives and futures.Our impact on the community
We help young people gain new skills and friendships to help them achieve for themselves. We work to build confidence and self esteem alongside communications skills and personal development to help build a better future. We work with families, supporting the child, the sibling and the parents to support a better quality and experience of life. We support families under pressure and give them hope and support when things are especially tough.
