Families United Network (FUN) was established as an independent charity in 2002 by a group of parents needing support and services for their children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). FUN provides advice, support and services to SEND children, young people and their families living in Bedfordshire and surrounding counties. FUN is the largest pan-disability charity within Bedfordshire and supports children and young adults living with many different types of physical and/or learning disabilities.
FUN supports the whole family, including siblings and parent carers, and we work across a whole range of disabilities. Most of the work we do focuses on supporting families with children and young adults aged from birth -25 yrs.
FUN believes that every young person should have social and educational opportunities available to them that enable them to reach their full potential FUN aims to provide our young people with the same social and leisure opportunities that their non-disabled peers enjoy, but within a more supportive and accepting environment. FUN staff are trained to understand the needs of the children and young people and to respect their dignity, wishes and aspirations.
