At Incredible Kids, we’re passionate about providing inclusive play sessions for young people with additional needs and their families. We provide a safe and welcoming environment where children and young people can have fun, make new friends and build important life skills.
Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly to ensure that every child feels supported, valued and included, but in times like these, we aren’t too proud to say we could do with some help. Here are 6 simple yet effective ways to make a difference to Bristol-based families.
We’re a non-profit charity, which means we rely heavily on the generosity of people like you to carry out our mission. Donations (no matter how small) make a huge difference in helping us support families who have kids with additional needs.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to support Incredible Kids is by making a monetary donation. Your donation will go directly towards funding our play sessions. Whether you can donate £3 or £300, head over to our donate page to make a difference!
Donate physical items:
If you prefer to donate physical items instead of cash, we always appreciate donations of equipment, supplies or toys that we can use in our sessions or distribute to those in need. Every offer is welcomed so head over to our get in touch page and we’ll let you know the best time to drop your donation off at The Vench in Bristol.
Get creative with how you fundraise for us! Maybe you’re a future Bake Off contestant and could run a cake sale, or maybe you’re a sports-lover and could whip up a sponsored keepy-up marathon. Whatever your thing is, by setting up a JustGiving page, you can use it to raise money for the families we support.
JustGiving is a platform that makes it easy for people to donate money directly to charities. You can use social media to promote your page and encourage others to donate. Don’t worry, we’ll give you all the support you need with the admin side of things. Just get in touch with your idea.

You’d be joining a passionate and dedicated team of individuals who share your commitment to making a difference to Bristol-based families. We would provide all the necessary training and support to ensure that you felt confident in your role. So, ready to come aboard our Incredible team? Get in touch!
- Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is the way businesses give back to society, and Incredible Kids is a great way for companies to get involved. Incredible Kids provides support to children with disabilities and their families, helping them lead fulfilling lives.
Your workplace can support Incredible Kids by hosting a fundraising event. This could be anything from a tombola or charity auction to a sponsored walk.
What’s in it for the company? By running fundraising events or donating to Incredible Kids, a company’s employees and customers understand that the business cares about the community and are willing to give back.
- Gifts In Kind
Gifts in kind are an excellent way to help those less fortunate and make a positive impact on society. Incredible Kids really benefits from receiving these types of gifts, which can come in the form of clothing, food, furniture, or toys.
Gifts in kind are often donated by individuals or businesses and given directly to those who need them most. By gifting to Incredible Kids, you’ll be helping children who may not have access new clothes or toys.
Giving gifts in kind also helps reduce waste by reusing items that would otherwise end up in landfills. It’s friendly to the environment and friendly to society. A win win!
- Workplace Giving Campaigns
Workplace giving campaigns are an essential part of modern corporate social responsibility efforts. They provide employees with a way to give back to their communities while also reflecting positively on the company’s values and commitment to social impact.
The power of workplace giving campaigns lies in their ability to bring people together for a common cause. Through these campaigns, companies can create a sense of community among their employees and encourage them to actively participate in philanthropic activities.
Workplace giving campaigns come in different types. However, they’re usually annual employer-sponsored programmes that offer employees the opportunity to make a charitable contribution through recurring payroll deduction. By pooling resources, workplaces can make a significant impact.
If you choose Incredible Kids as your company’s charity, you’d be giving your employees the opportunity to positively impact the lives of families who have children with additional needs.
