Unique Kidz and Co – A Charity for Disabled Children and Young People with Disabilities

Founded in 2009, Unique Kidz and Co was set up by two mums, Denise and Jane when they were unable to find suitable childcare for their own disabled children..

As mums, they’d always known that one size doesn’t fit all. Everyone is unique. For years they struggled, like so many other parents, to find the balance between work and suitable childcare. Unable to find anywhere that catered to their children’s specific needs, they decided to set something up themselves!

They had no experience in childcare or business and spent two years attending courses. They also spent a lot of time talking to other parents to find out what they needed. After months of gruelling research, legalities, training and business planning they created Unique Kidz and Co.

In the summer of 2009, they proudly opened the doors. Unique Kidz and Co’s first ever Summer Holiday Club ran with 65 children attending. Over the years the services have grown along with their children. They now run from their own building based in Morecambe and in 2016 opened 4Ever Unique to offer daytime support for young adults up to the age of 25.

The aim of the charity is to advance the social and play opportunities of children and young people with additional needs and disabilities and to include their siblings.

Come and see for yourself the amazing work that goes on at Unique Kidz and Co!
