We’re Sparkle, the official charity of Serennu, Nevill Hall and Caerphilly Children's Centres

Sparkle ensures Gwent children and young people with disabilities and/or developmental difficulties, along with 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. That's why we are always fundraising to provide the unique services, trained staff and state-of-the-art equipment needed to ensure we have the highest quality facilities and support in place.

Archie's story

I don’t know what we would do without the Sparkle club. Archie has the best time when he comes to Sparkle, he really does. The Sparkle team really know him so they understand his little quirks and we just trust them.

Autism is just something Archie lives with and he’s the most beautiful boy for it. Sparkle helps him embrace his individuality and makes sure he has the most opportunities he possibly can.

Janet, Archie's Mum
