Children's Respite Trust Charity for disabled children in Sussex, Kent from Sevenoaks to EastbourneWe’d love to be able to help all families with disabled children, but sadly need to prioritise our efforts to those most in need. We look at the whole family’s situation rather than just the diagnosis of the child, but usually the child will have some physical limitations. Very often it is not straight forward, as children will have a variety of symptoms rather an a single recognisable condition.

If in doubt, please do give us a call on 01435 205004.
