About us

About Aiming Higher

Aiming Higher is a Blackpool based charity that supports families with disabled children across the Fylde Coast. Our Centre on Church Street, allows us to provide a range of fantastic facilities including a soft play area, interactive ball pool, sensory room and a beautiful suite of parent and counselling rooms. It also houses the offices for Aiming Higher and provides a place of support for many of our families. It is also a great venue for activities during term-time, providing a safe and relaxed atmosphere for children to grow and develop. We also regularly hold family sessions as well as Drop-In Coffee Mornings where they can access training, peer support, a cuppa and a listening ear.

A Special Place

Every year we welcome more and more families with disabled children through our doors. Aiming Higher is a place where special bonds and friendships are formed and our activities allow disabled children the chance to enjoy life as it should be enjoyed – like everyone else. If you haven’t been to see us yet or attended one of our events – please come and visit soon, we’d love to see you.
