Flexible, Immediate & Sustained Day Care for Children with Additional Needs
The Foundation’s aim is simple: to give a special welcome to the families of children with special needs and provide unique, supervised and vital day care and respite with support for parents and carers in a carefree environment where there are no sneers or stares.
The Foundation’s Hop Skip & Jump centres provide play and support for children with a disability, life threatening illness, or any additional need. They also offer vital day care respite for the children, their families and carers. Hop Skip & Jump give these special children the opportunity to build confidence, social skills and self esteem whilst providing parents, carers and siblings a place to have a well earned break.
On Sunday June 9th, Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne are hosting a Charity Cricket Match at Cirencester Park in aid of the Hop Skip and Jump Foundation and the Shane Warne Foundation.
