Friends of Castle School

Friends of Castle is a locally based, user-led, charity who aim to provide Information, Advice, Signposting, events & activities in the community for families with children

(0-25 years) with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities.

The charity has risen from being the charity of the special school in Newbury to being the charity for all in West Berkshire and now supports over 200 families locally.  As our numbers are growing monthly the charity is quickly moving forward with 100% of activities being user-led. 

This approach has enabled us to engage with families who previously had poor experiences, or no experience, of activities in the community.

Teenage volunteers, with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities are offered opportunities, to organise and participate in valuable roles with-in the activities that are organised throughout the community, our charity needs further income to support this vital work and to give more people hope and options that are affordable to all.

If you would like to sponsor us or perhaps do some fundraising please do get in-touch.
