Who We Are and What We Do

Forest Pulse is a local registered charity which provides a range of exciting out-of-school social, sport and recreational activities for disabled children and young people up to the age of 19, giving them the opportunity to meet up with friends, have fun and learn alongside their non-disabled peers. Activities provided are varied so that everybody has the opportunity to access them whatever their ability or mobility, giving them the same opportunities as their non-disabled peers. Our staff are all trained and experienced in meeting all the individual needs of the young people that come along to our activities. The charity also supports parents/carers in a variety of ways.

We also provide guidance, advice and support to parents and create opportunities for families to meet and share experiences.

Forest Pulse believes that disabled children and young people should have the same opportunities to take part in social, recreational and sports activities as their non-disabled peers, and to be able to do this independently of their parents/carers. We therefore provide a wide range of after school, weekend and holiday activities which are accessible to any disabled young person regardless of their level of ability or mobility, and including those with profound, complex and challenging needs.

We also work along side other organisations who provide support and services for disabled young people and their families.To find out what services are available that might benefit you and your family.
