Welcome to Sparkle...


Hi! We’re Sparkle, the official charity of the Serennu Children's Centre in Newport, and Nevill Hall Children’s Centre in Abergavenny. The guiding principle for the Sparkle Appeal is to ensure that children and young people with disabilities and/or developmental difficulties and their families are fully supported and able to participate in valued childhood experiences, with access to the same range of opportunities, life experiences, activities and community services as any other child and their family. 

Life isn’t easy for some of our children, young people or their families, The Sparkle Team want to ensure the best possible facilities and support are in place this is why the Sparkle Appeal raises money throughout the year to fund the unique services, trained staff and state-of-the-art equipment .

The Sparkle team are always happy to receive feedback from families.
We believe it is important that families and/or staff understand that feedback, whether negative or positive, is a way we can develop Sparkle services/provisions, by improving our highlighted weak areas, and continuing to deliver out identified strengths.

Sparkle are delighted to announce that they are now supporting the Nevill Hall Children’s Centre, following on from the work of the Umbrella Appeal. We already have a presence in the North of the County, with our excellent Family Liaison Officer, and the activities we support there including swimming lessons, parent and staff workshops, and family fun days. We are currently engaged in a detailed consultation exercise with families and professionals across North Gwent to understand what the priorities are regarding enhanced services, following which we anticipate expanding our service provision. In the meantime, in response to requests from families, we will be commencing a new swimming program, to complement the one currently provided at Crownbridge. 

If you would like to join us as we expand into the area, by volunteering, or donating, please contact the Sparkle Office on 01633 748092.
