Our work began in 2013 with coffee morning at various community centres across Malvern and Worcester. The need that appeared was startling. My small team of volunteers and I started developing a programme that responded to the developing need of the families.
From there we have grown quickly in response to the local need and now need urgent funding to meet the demand.
We are a special needs Charity which offer a wide range of projects and services that run from our Malvern Support Centre, across Worcestershire and the neighbouring counties. The Charity provides a family-centered care approach, supporting parents, carers, friends, siblings and children with disabilities aged 0-19 years.
We offer a range of activities that help reduce isolation and bring people together, helping families and their children gain confidence, reduce social isolation and increase independence.

My youngest grandson attends sessions at the centre and he really enjoys the activities. It gives him the opportunity to interact with other children and develop his social skills.
My 2 sons aged 3 & 4 have been going to WMYDMYB for the last two weeks and they love it! They always come home full of smiles with something new to show or tell me! The tie dye baby wipes have been my favourite so far. My eldest has ADHD & ASD and WMYDMYB is a perfect outlet for him. All of the staff are lovely, warm and welcoming and so helpful on drop off and pick ups (especially when they don’t want to leave). Thank you so much you’ve given me the chance to have some “me time” during the holidays and I will definitely be booking them in for more days in the future. X
Brilliant charity great support for my children which 3 have a rare genetic disorder thanks so much.
