Chairmans Welcome

Thank you for stopping by our website and engaging with our fabulous charity, Aiming Higher, which helps support families across the Fylde Coast with disabled children.

Since our charity was set up by a handful of parents who wanted to make a real difference in our local community, our dedicated teams of staff, volunteers and trustees have provided some fantastic services and facilities.

At present we have more than 750 families that we have made a difference to, with day to day to support, benefit advice, fun events, respite breaks and so much more.

Whilst we are proud of our achievements and the difference that they make, I would like to highlight the fact that, as an Independent charity, our ongoing activities, services and events rely solely on finances raised through sponsorship, donations and grants. If you would like to find out more about the different ways you can support Aiming Higher such as volunteering, fund raising or perhaps in the form of a donation – however big or small, then please see the relevant page on this website or, drop us an email –

If you are already a supporter, we would like to thank you for helping to make a difference to the lives of local disabled children, and their families or if you’re thinking of coming on board, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

John Child
Chair, Aiming Higher
