At Foreland Fields Charity we have a clear mission: to offer support, education, and life opportunities to young people living with Profound, Severe, and Complex Needs, enabling them to achieve their own goals.
Foreland Fields Charity was set up in June 2018 to help advance the education and life opportunities of young people living in Thanet and Kent, with profound, severe and complex needs (PSCN) and additional difficulties arising from physical disabilities, sensory impairments or Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Aid is given by providing equipment, activities and resources, providing support to develop their skills capacities and capabilities, and so helping them to participate in society as independent and responsible individuals, developing their mental, physical, and moral capabilities through educational and leisure time activities, and providing recreational and leisure time activities in the interest of social welfare, designed to improve their conditions of life.
We are building, in conjunction with KCC, a hub for children and adults with special needs and/or disabilities. The facility will be known as The Hive, to reflect the various and busy activities that will be happening onsite! The aim of the centre will be to deliver lifelong leisure and learning opportunities, reducing social isolation, improving physical and mental health outcomes and improving employment prospects. The hub will be open evenings, weekends and holidays as well as in term time. The facility will be available for use during school times to partners.
