Aiming Higher is a unique charity established in 2011 for disabled children and their families, set up to improve the children and families lives and offer them much needed support.
We moved into our current premises in 2013, Aiming Higher Central, Church Street, Blackpool. This fantastic building offers a wide variety of facilities including soft play area, interactive ball pool and sensory room, which were refurbished in late 2016 and again in 2019 . We also have a beautiful parent’s room and counselling suite. We provide a timetable of activities for pre-schoolers funded by BBC Children in Need, family support, family trips & events and counselling services.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to present circumstances we have had to change the way we work. We have closed our centre to the public for the time being but the whole team continue to support families and we will restart our normal timetable of activities as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime if you would like to learn more about how we are supporting families please visit our Covid-19 information page by clicking here. Thank you for your support at this time.
We rely heavily on fundraising, donations, and sponsorship to provide these wonderful services for our precious children and families. Aiming Higher has gained the trust of more than 800 disabled children and their families since being founded 9 years ago. More than ever these children and families rely on our support, to maintain the relationships that we have created and so that we continue to make a difference to their lives.
