SPACE is a parent led charity support group for families that have children with additional needs. The aim of SPACE is to provide a safe and accessible play opportunities for children with additional needs and also support their families through peer support and providing information.

We started in January 2015 running a regular stay and play drop in session at the Live! youth club in Chester. In our first year we have had more than 80 children attend the sessions and supported over 60 families.

We have since expanded and started a weekly preschool group in Kingsway Childrens Centre and a monthly parent/carer coffee morning.

All of our staff members are volunteers. As a result we are always looking for help. There are many ways that you can help us from donating, volunteering, doing a sponsored event or just telling other people about what we do. If you can help in any way please contact us.

'Stay & Play' - every Saturday from 2-4pm at the Newsmen Youth Centre, Newton Lane, Chester.

'Little Stars' is a pre-school group run by parents of older children with additional needs. Held at Kingsway Children's Centre, there are a range of toys for children to play with and a sensory corner. Tuesdays 09:30-11:30am (term time) - Kingsway & Upton Childrens Centre.

ABOUT SPACE - Jemma's Story:

Space started as an idea when my daughter was just 6 months old. Isabelle was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease which is a life limiting condition that brings with it many complex health needs. The first few months of Isabelle's life were tough, coming to terms with her diagnosis and a completely new way of thinking.

The past 3 years have been a roller coaster journey, I've become part of a world I never expected to. Being a parent of a child with special needs is a very lonely place to be. Learning as we go, I have been fortunate to meet other parents along this journey who have taught me a lot. However there are no local support groups for parents of young children with additional needs, and no play places to take the children that are fully accessible.

The aim of SPACE is to change this, to provide a SPACE where parents can meet and support each other, a SPACE where children of all abilities can play.

In 2014 a group of us got together and formed 'Team Space' . We set up as a small charity and fundraised to set up our first project the 'STAY AND PLAY' sessions.
