FeastyFest Community Projects was launched to empower people to create, inspire and build new opportunities for each other and work closely with individuals and community groups to provide a wide range of activities which target the most in need in our local community.
We are self funded with no government assistance and rely on donations made by our parent company FeastyFest, private organisations & individuals.
Our target donation amount is how much we still need to raise. This figure will change to meet the needs of each project with any funds left over rolling over to the next FeastyFest Community Project .
One Step At A Time is a small friendly support group for families with special needs children started by one woman whose own son Alfie was born in 2004 with a rare genetic disorder called Gillespie Syndrome (he’s 1 of 26 in the world).
As a family they understand the importance of contact with others in similar situations and hope the group will enable families with complex needs children to feel less alone by offering the support of this small community.
One Step at a Time's aim is to bring families together for friendship and support while giving children the opportunity to express themselves throughout play. There mission is to create a safe haven for children with additional needs to have fun and develop their play skills in a safe environment.
At present they support around 35 children, parents and carers with ages from 4 to 15 with a number of disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Sensory Disorder, Autism, Mobility Issues and Complex Needs . Caring for a child/children can be very challenging and over whelming at times this is where One Step at a Time do their very best to support each and every one.
Each year One Step at a Time like to take not only the children with complex needs, but the carers and families on a day out where the children get to interact as a group in a safe, fun and new environment while the parents can relax and reinforce their community support network and with 35 children, families and carers arranging such a day can be challenging to say the least.
https://feastyfest.co.uk/community-projects/ will be arranging transport, the days activities, food and offering their physical support on the day so PLEASE help us achieve our target for this wonderful group by making a donation.
