Family Events & Activities

Without a doubt, nurturing and bringing up a disabled child brings immense pleasure to the parents and families, but often there is a struggle when it comes to planning days out, activities and trips for the whole family to enjoy together.

The money we raise through the many fundraising efforts goes towards supporting our family events. These are very popular, often providing once in a lifetime experiences for some children, the cost of all our events and trips are subsidised and therefore affordable.

It was really nice to be able to actually go to the cinema, without the worry or stress of how people will react to my child making noise. There is no way to keep her quiet…she makes lots of noise when excited. She may also need medical intervention, such as suction which is noisy too. We usually avoid the cinema as the general public want quiet cinemas! It was nice to know that the event was Aiming Higher families only. There were children being able to do what they needed….making noise, moving around, stimming etc and it was simply accepted, no judgements or comments and I really liked that.

Organise your own fundraising event

Never planned an event before? No worries – we’re here to guide you. Reach out to us at 01253 206448, and we’ll help navigate your ideas and set you on the right path. It would be beneficial to conduct some local events research to ensure your event doesn’t coincide with any similar event.

Consider crafting an engaging poster that you can share with us for our website, which will aid in promoting your event. Spread the word through social media and as many channels as possible. The success of your event heavily relies on efficient promotion, so don’t hold back…inform everyone! Once you get the ball rolling, you’ll be amazed at how eager people are to lend a hand.

Contact us for guidance and for an authorization letter, which can help you gain support from others – 01253 206448.
