We offer affordable therapy solutions for children who have speech, language, communication, learning and emotional needs associated with medical conditions, developmental delays or disorders, and challenging life experiences.
- 1 in 7 children are suffering Mental Health difficulties
- 1 in 10 children struggle with Speech, Language and Communication Needs
- 12% of local children have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities
Pictologue is helping to bridge the gap. This year we provided over 500 therapy appointments - 82% more than last! We currently provide therapeutic support to over 80 local families and your donation will make a life-changing difference to each and everyone. Read what our parents say here!
Sadly, the cost of living crisis has further impacted our families, with 60% now experiencing financial difficulties (compared with 10% pre-pandemic). Additionally, our income from grants and funding has reduced by 34% reflecting the increasingly competitive context for fundraising at this time. Read Cranfield's report on the critical challenges experienced by charities nationally as we struggle to balance demand, change and survival.
Now, more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. We need to raise £10,000 to survive or £25,000 to thrive - please help! Your support enables us to offer free and subsidised therapy services and specialist toyboxes for our families in most need. Every little bit makes a big difference.
From our heart to yours - thank you!
