The power of a cup of tea (our story in a nutshell)

Incredible Kids was created by parents in Bristol when they lost access to a local disability centre. Our founder Jennie came up with the simple idea to meet up in a local church and all the parents worked together to bring toys, support each other and create a safe place for their families to continue to play together.

Parents baked cakes, got comfy and listened to each other. As a charity we may have grown but our ethos remains focused on supporting families with similar experiences…and we still firmly believe in the power of a cup of tea.

Since the beginning it was clear that we needed a permanent venue to support families through the week and this remains our focus. We’ve hall-hopped to many spaces around Bristol and South Gloucestershire and this has made us quick to adapt and super resilient.

We believe this hardship and determination helped us be one of the only children’s disability charities to retain public-facing family play sessions during the 2020 lockdowns.
