Muffin’s Dream Foundation is a charity which was set up in October 2012 and registered in January 2014. We are dedicated to helping families who have a child or young adult with a disability or illness. Our aim is to make sure the children we help never miss out on a normal upbringing by offering them a wide range of support services, both in the community and in the hospital environment as well as supporting their family members and close friends.
We offer a wide range of services such as boredom buster bags, hospital visits, sibling services, birthday parties, one to one support and babysitting as well as tea parties and activity days where families can come along and just have fun with people who understand what they are going through.
We also organize workshops which offer children and young adults a way to enjoy experiences they may not have had the chance to do normally, such as wheelchair dancing! We also run confidence workshops to help boost their self-esteem and accept that it’s ok to be different and be proud!
We are there when things are good as well as when the going gets tough.
1:1 Support and Drop-in Clinic
Did you know here at Muffin’s Dream Foundation we can offer 1:1 support and a drop-in clinic for carers and parents of children with a disability or illness? We can sign post you through available support ranging from financial, educational and health care support. By offering you long term support we will empower you to eventually make decisions regarding the well-being of your child with confidence and knowledge.
Many of you have informed us that after receiving a diagnosis for your child you have felt lost in trying to access the information and support needed. This ranges from access to disability and carer’s allowance,understanding of an Education, Care and Health Plan, and comprehending which professional team provides specific needs for your child.
We can support you by offering 1:1 sessions in your home, so that we can discuss your concerns and help you devise an action place as well as directing you to available resources. Where necessary we can advocate on your behalf.
If you may benefit from this support, please get in touch, we are here when things are good and when the going gets tough!
