WECAN

We are a community based organisation in Hexham, serving the South West Northumberland area supporting children and young people with additional needs to access community leisure activities and local events. We currently provide a term time Saturday Club and a five week summer holiday scheme with further occasional activity days. We also provide a high quality enabling service where our experienced staff support children and young people with additional needs on a one-to-one basis in the community.  We currently support 50 children with additional needs, but there are still many families who need our support. As a small local charity with many volunteers, fundraising plays a vital part in order to continue our service.

We deliver a unique service promoting inclusion, independence, friendship and lots of fun, enriching the lives of our users and providing vital support for their families.

WECAN allows time for the children to develop socially enjoying activities with friends whilst providing respite for their parents and siblings.

WECAN will continue to support children with additional needs in the community, enabling them to take part in and enjoy social activities of their choice, to form friendships and to increase their confidence and independence.
