Introducing ‘We Are Beams’ The Kings Hill Directory’s Charity of the Year 2022

We Are Beams is a local charity that supports disabled children and their families in Kent and Medway.

Beams was established as a charity in 1996 by a group of parents who believed they could deliver better support for their disabled child. Twenty-five years later the charity now supports over 450 families and children at any one time.

The disabled children and young people who access the services will typically have one or more learning difficulty, complex health needs, physical or sensory impairment, challenging behaviour, Autism or severe ADHD.

Beams Services are divided into 5 key areas; Family Advice, Short Break Service, Dragons Retreat Respite Unit, Direct Payment and Payroll.

The last two years have been a difficult one for small charities such as We Are Beams and even more so, for the disabled children and the families that receive their support. Many fundraising events have been cancelled and We Are Beams needs
to raise £1.6million each year to continue to offer the services to some of the most vulnerable in our society.

There are a number of ways you can get involved and help raise money for We Are Beams; you can sign up to a challenge event, become a Friend of Beams, arrange your own event or simply make a one off donation.
