 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.

 Welcome to 2022 from HNT!

 After another challenging year for everyone, it looks as though there is a glimmer of hope with covid-19 restrictions being lifted as vaccinations are further rolled out. Do look at the list of   events that are being organised for 2022 and 2023 as you may like to be involved!  Go to "HNT What’s On".

 PLEASE NOTE, due to the Ukrainian Crisis, some of the planned events for HNT are likely to change in terms of timings/dates. This is because HNT is a base for collections for Ukraine, and also   because as President for Sherborne Castles Rotary Club, much is going on behind the scenes at this very sad time.

 For HNT, despite the hurdles over the last 2 years, I have been busier than ever, having to think completely “out of the box” of ways to support those in the community in whatever way has   been needed.

 ​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.
