Make a Difference

As a charity Footprints is funded entirely from fundraising, charity and support partners, along with grants and trusts.

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who works with and supports us – together we can keep on building a brighter future for children with disabilities and their families across the East Midlands.

We need £5,066 to support one family for one year (on average, it costs £162.39 per child per session) and £30,916 per month is needed to maintain and grow our service.

Our early intervention support allows children who live with disabilities to gain the confidence, essential skills and quality of life that many people take for granted.

Why Your Support Is So Important

Your support really will make a difference - in the past year we supported over 60 children – children and their families living with a range of difficulties, including Cerebral Palsy, Global Development Delay and Down Syndrome.

We know Footprints transforms childrens and families lives. Greater independence, access to mainstream services and making friends depend on day to day activities others take for granted.

Our focus is to develop vital communication and mobility skills and practice daily tasks, such as eating, drinking and going to the toilet, as well as better equipping our children to go to school and take part in social activities.

Our own research with our families told us that by coming to Footprints -

  • 96% felt their child had increased levels of movement skills

  • 97% felt their child had increased levels of coordination skills 

  • 94% felt their child’s ability to understand others had improved

  • 90% felt their child’s ability to communicate and make themselves understand had improved

  • 100% felt their child had increased levels of engagement

  • And 94% felt their child had increased levels of self-motivation
