Supporting Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), young people under the age of 25 with learning difficulties, their families, carers, and the specialist educational providers that support them in Dorset and Somerset.
A personal message from Rachel Goodfellow, Hidden Needs Trust Founder, Chair of Trustees and Fundraiser.
Another year has flown by and as per usual HNT has been incredibly busy, mainly by delivering goods to families, schools, and securing funding through the help of the Masons for a counsellor at Sherborne Primary School.
Since the pandemic, the work that the school counsellor has done with the most vulnerable children and their families has been invaluable, students who were initially struggling emotionally and mentally being able to go on to be successful students at The Gryphon School.
I have also been busy supporting other charities and charitable organisations with goods and promoting their work on a monthly radio programme on Abbey-104.
Having a couple of old bikes in need of loads of TLC, Rachel donated them to Prodigal Bikes, a charity who refurbish bikes before sending them to Africa.
The picture above was taken in Kenya and shows the happy new owners.
Get in touch with Prodigal Bikes if you have any old bikes you don't need.
