Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity has taken the difficult decision to suspend sessions in order to protect our children and families at this challenging time. We are working hard to find new ways of continuing to support our families, and are busy producing resources for families to use at home and we will be sharing on our website very soon.

Supporting under 5s with cerebral palsy and other motor learning impairments realise their full potential

Welcome to Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity. Our Charity was created to give very special children a place where they can learn and thrive in a warm, supportive setting that understands their unique journey.

Through our early intervention service and support network, we work alongside our families to give their very young children the best possible start in life – so that they can realise their full potential.

We receive no statutory funding and rely entirely on the community to raise our funds.  Your support is extremely important to us and we are grateful to each and every one of our supporters.

Find out more about the services we offer here, including those for parents, our long history, or read the stories of some of our remarkable young children.  There are many ways you can get involved - community, corporate involvement, volunteering and challenge events.
