Callum’s Promise is a new programme by Include Me TOO which aims to raise funds to increase disabled children and young people’s experience to fun and adventures by accessing such facilities. The charity also is aiming to increase awareness regarding disabilities and misconceptions whilst demonstrating how real inclusion can provide opportunities for all abilities.
Callum's Promise is a result of disabled children and young people wanting to take part to support a promise made by the founder of Include Me TOO to her disabled son Callum of a life full of fun, adventure and friendships which is shared throughout the charity’s work. Include Me TOO is about increasing choices and opportunities, creating a sense of belonging in society and valuing and including all children and their families, regardless of their additional needs.
Fun, Adventures and Friendships matter to disabled children and young people too. We aim to support disabled children and their families to create lasting treasured memories as we understand the importance of fun friendships and adventures whilst we also continue to campaign for the change needed. We are introducing a grant programme providing:
- FAB therapy play - Fun & Adventure in a Box
- Fun & Adventure in a Backpack - Supporting wishes creating treasured memories.
"The reality is disabled children and young people have less opportunities to fun experiences, limited chances of making friends and meeting new people, and have limited opportunities to have the support they need to have their adventures. Everyone wants to experience fun, have friendships and share adventures, Together we can make this happen for disabled children and young people ensuring they too can leave a mark on this world.
