Telephone: 01798 342222

Address: Andy Beadsley, Director,The Wheelyboat Trust, North Lodge, Burton Park, Petworth West SussexGU28 0JT

Our work benefits people of all ages with a wide range of sensory, learning and mobility impairments.  Wheelyboats can be operated independently by disabled people who are less dependent on others; they can organise their own trips and can train for and attain RYA powerboating and other qualifications increasing their skills and enabling them to mentor others.  (The Royal Yachting Association’s new schemePowerabilityhas the specific aim of encouraging more disabled people on the water in motor and powerboats).  Those at the opposite end of the scale of independence enjoy the sensory stimulation of being on the water.  For people with complex needs like autism and epilepsy, boating activities have been shown to provide a calming experience enabling them to take an interest in their surroundings.  For older people whose mobility is declining, Wheelyboats play an increasingly important role in helping them remain active.

Telephone: 020 8789 9575

Address: ClearVision Project, Linden Lodge School, 61 Princes Way, London SW196JB

Anybody in the UK or Ireland who needs children’s books with both braille and print text is welcome to join the ClearVision library. The books are sent directly to your address and there is no postage to pay. Membership is free to families; organisations such as schools, libraries and sensory support services pay a heavily-subsidised annual fee of £50. To join, complete the form below. If you have difficulty with this, please call us on 020 8789 9575.

Our books are designed to be shared and are suitable for any child who is learning braille or who might do so in the future. Some of our ‘readers’ are babies and toddlers whose parents are keen to get them used to feeling braille long before they learn to read it – in the same way that fully-sighted babies see print everywhere before they can make sense of it. We have board books, picture books and books for newly-fluent readers, but do not stock longer books for children who are independent readers. Once our borrowers have reached this level we encourage them to join other libraries which stock braille-only books, such as the RNIB Library.

Our books are ordinary children’s picture books with added braille (or Moon). They do not have enlarged print and are therefore not especially suitable for children with a visual impairment who are learning to read print.

Contact Form: http://www.paccshropshire.org.uk/contact-us
Address: Parent and Carer Council Shropshire, PO Box 4774, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY1 9EX

Our aim is that parents and carers are informed about, consulted about, and participate in, developments which affect their children. By joining PACC you will get the opportunity to participate in addressing the issues that affect your family. PACC is free to join and you can take part in as much or as little as you feel able to.

Parents and carers of children with a disability or an additional need often find it difficult to make their voices heard when seeking to influence the provision of services that affect them and the children in their care. At the same time there are health, social, education and other professionals who need input and feedback from parents and carers like you.

By registering as a PACC member you will be contacted by email by carefully vetted professionals seeking your input on the performance of services for children with disabilities or additional needs in Shropshire. These opportunities may take the form of a simple online questionnaire, or maybe an invitation to take part in a face-to-face consultation.

There is no obligation to respond and we do not record any personal information about you or your child. It’s simply an opportunity for you to connect with the professionals in your area who have the power to make a difference.

Activities include:

  • Events to bring parents and carers together
  • Taking part in consultations to government, etc.
  • Autism West Midlands summer programme of events
  • Newsletter
  • Links to other organisations
  • Information for professionals
