Sparkle - Helping Special Children Shine

Sparkle is a Gwent based charity who support children and young people with disabilities and development difficulties. As part of their mission, they also aim to support families and ensure that the children and young people are able to engage with valuable childhood experiences as well as access the same range of activities, experiences and opportunities as other families.  


If you have a child or young person who is diagnosed or undergoing assessment for a disability or developmental difficulty you can contact the family liaison officer for support. The family liaison can offer a range of guidance, support and resources. They also plan and coordinate events to support families in the local area.
