Unique Kidz and Co
You’ve come to the right place
If you’ve struggled to find suitable childcare and social activities for your disabled child, you’re in the right place. We are the only OFSTED registered childcare service for disabled children and their families in the North Lancashire/South Cumbria area, and we currently offer play, social and support activities at our centre in Morecambe to over 130 children, each as unique as each other. The charity was founded in 2009 by Denise Armer and Jane Halpin, two mums of children with disabilities. Unable to find appropriate childcare in the area for their own children, they decided to take matters into their own hands and create the kind of environment and support children and families in the area needed.

The quality of our services has been recognised nationally, with our provision winning various awards, Children in Need funding and an outstanding rating by OFSTED in 2010 and 2014.
It is our mission to provide children with disabilities the same opportunities as other children to spend their leisure time in a fun, friendly, stimulating and accepting environment. Family support *hyperlink to Support for Families* is integral to the service we offer, and if you’re having difficulties with any part of the many complications that come after your child has been diagnosed, please talk to us. Our coffee mornings ** are a great place for you to meet other parents and carers, share information and find a safe, supportive space to chat about the rewards, joys and serious challenges of caring for disabled children.
Here are a few of the services we currently offer, although we are growing and developing all the time:
- Holiday clubs
- After school clubs
- Weekend trips
- Projects for under 5's
- Support for siblings
- Consultation workshops
- Specialist training for practitioners
We couldn’t do our work without the generosity of donations from ordinary people, fundraising events and grants and trusts, so if you would like to help us continue our work please visit our Fundraising Page to find out how you can get involved.
